Churchill Academy

Sports Awards 2017

Our annual Sports Awards evening at Cadbury House was a great success this year. Over 350 students were treated to a performance from football freestyler Steven Gray and video messages from Ruby Harrold, George Ford and Manu Tuilagi. Our guest of honour, Chantelle Miell (Churchill alumnus and England Rugby Sevens star) spoke to students about how she had worked hard to overcome setbacks and challenges to end up representing her country in the sport she loves. It was a powerful and uplifting message for everyone in the room. 

The awards celebrated the incredible strength in depth of sport at Churchill. The full list of winners and nominees is below.
