Every term we have some exceptional sports news, however this time it is even more special. One of our Year 11 students, Idris, went on to his way to become a professional football player. Idris secured a contract with Fulham FC and he joins the club full-time. It shouldn’t be too long before we start watching him on television!
Year 10 student Alie, one of our best athletes in the Academy, represented Southwark Borough in the London Championships at Battersea Park in June. With his third throw, he beat his personal best by 70cm with a whopping 13.55m throw.
This throw is 25cm above the National Standard for his age group! This meant that Alie reached the standard to compete at the English Schools National Championships in Birmingham in July where he was one of only 2 boys to represent London Borough against athletes from 43 other counties. In Shot Put, Alie is now the best in London for his age group and 6th best in England! His performance on the day helped the London Team finish 3rd overall in the Junior Boys Competition.
