On Thursday 21st November the Year 7 boys had their turn to represent Ark Pioneer Academy at the Indoor Athletics competition. Mr Burton and Ms Pick took two teams of year 7 pupils to Queens Elizabeth’s Girls School, to compete against 7 other schools from the Barnet Schools Sport Partnership.

With the girl’s team coming away with a silver medal two weeks ago, it was going to be a difficult challenge for the boy’s team to emulate their success. The pupils all competed individually in indoor field and track events, as well as taking part in different relay races. The performance of all pupils was to a very high standard.

Both teams competed fantastically, with one of our teams coming 4th (team 2) and the other team winning a silver medal by placing 2nd (team 1). Each pupil was a brilliant ambassador for Ark Pioneer Academy. The future of athletics looks very exciting for us as a school with some amazing performances from both our boys’ and girls’ teams.
