Sports Day

Akeley Wood House

On Monday 25th June, Akeley Wood Senior School hosted its annual sports day and we were treated to glorious sunshine for the occasion. All students were a credit to the school throughout the day whether this be in the events that they took part in or the support they showed for their peers when spectating. After all events had been completed it was revealed that Stuart House were the overall winners for the second year in succession.
