“Across all our schools, from nursery to sixth form, physical education and sports is a vital part of our curriculum that we continue to develop and enrich so that our pupils get many opportunities to participate in a diverse range of sports.

“From football, rugby and cricket to swimming, archery and cycling, encouraging participation in a sport is something we as a Trust actively champion.

“We instil a love for sport in all of our children and emphasise the importance of physical activity and the benefits being involved in sport has.

“It’s great to see passion for sport outside of school and the huge part it plays in young people’s lives. Huge congratulations to Marley, Macey and Molly. It’s been lovely to share their winning stories in school and showcase their medal haul.”

Marley and Macey competed in a gala organised by Tynemouth Swimming Club that took place over three days. Molly took part in the Newcastle Shrimp Gala, a one-day event that also took place at Tynemouth Swimming Pool.
