One of our future September 2019 Year 7s, Libbie Joyce, travelled to Poland to compete in the Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) European Championships. This is the first year they have put a children’s race on alongside the adults.

Libbie did the UK proud and came back with a Bronze Medal in her Age Category (8 to 11 years old) where she competed against 30 girls from all around Europe.

Looking forward, Libbie will have to compete against adults from the age of 13, but in the short-term she will be working hard for the Spartan Worlds in December.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We are delighted that Libbie will be joining us and as she is competing at such a high standard she will qualify for our Elite Performance scheme which means we can put plans in place to ensure her international commitments are factored into her school work as much as possible.”
