Independent Schools Association Athletics competition

On Monday 21st May, a group of athletes from Akeley Wood attended the Independent Schools Association, for the Midlands qualifier. Thirty-three students ranging from Year 7 to Year 10 took part in a variety of track and field events. It was a very successful day with many students finishing top three in their events. A special mention to the students who won their events, resulting in qualification for the ISA Nationals in June. Well done to all the pupils who attended on the day, the effort and behaviour was exemplary all day.
