News, events and information from The Northern Education Trust
We are delighted to share some recent sporting success stories and accolades that some of our students at Kearsley Academy have achieved. The successes are based in a wide variety of sports including wrestling, cycling and trampolining. Northern Education Trust is always extremely proud of our students at Kearsley Academy, especially when all the effort and extra training that these students have applied has come to fruition with the sporting honours that they have attained.
Aiden Lawrence – Year 11
Aiden has been performing track and road cycling from a young age. He has trained tirelessly and as well as recently winning the Youth Tour of Scotland, Aiden also travelled to Belgium representing Green Jersey RT and won his race against other international competitors. Well done Aiden – an amazing achievement!
Malachi O’Neill – Year 11
Malachi has recently been competing in the National Wrestling Competition in Ireland. Malachi has worked extremely hard to ensure he is within his weight category, cycling to and from school and training each evening. At the national competition he competed against his peers, some of whom were more experienced and older athletes, but this didn’t stop Malachi from reaching the finals. Unfortunately he lost the final against the British Champion, who in fact is his wrestling coach and mentor. Malachi enjoyed the whole experience and learnt a great deal from it.
Isaac Green – Year 8
Isaac is extremely dedicated to trampolining. He regularly attends extracurricular trampoline clubs with Mrs Atherton and also attends sessions outside of school time at North West Trampoline Club. Isaac recently competed at the North West Championships at Robin Park coming first overall, and he has been selected for a national competition in June. In preparation for this, Isaac has been invited to train with Olympic athletes – a real honour.
