On Tuesday 26th November our year 7 and 8 students represented Durham Federation in the Durham and Chester-le Street schools sportshall athletics. The students competed in a range of events and performed exceptionally well against some strong competition. From year 7 Finley Lavell and Alex Chambers both finished 1st in the 4 lap race and Mckenzie Smith and Finley finished 2nd in the 8 lap team event. Alex Chambers finished 2nd in the 6 lap event.

Year 8’s also put out a strong performance with Ashton Gill finishing 2nd in his 4 lap race and Jessica Williamson finishing in 1st place. Jessica also stole 2nd place in the 6 lap race in which she was a late entry, a great effort. 

Overall the year 7 girls finished in 2nd place across the district and the year7 boys and year 8 girls and boys finishing in 3rd place overall across the district. 

Well done to all that took part.
