Stanley won his four-lap event and the Shot Put and came second in the standing triple jump. Mary won her Speed Bounce and came second in her four-lap event. Olivia came second in the two-lap event and third in both the standing triple jump and long jump.  Well done to you all.

Indoor Athletics - Level 3 County Finals

On Monday, 29th January, our Year 8 girls competed in the Level 3 County Finals for Indoor Athletics at UWE. The girls did really well to get through two previous rounds; beating all schools in the southern part of North Somerset and then coming second in the whole region.  The girls were a real credit to the Academy and showed great resilience and sportsmanship. Out of the eight schools competing, Churchill came fourth, which is a fantastic achievement. Again, many congratulations to Olivia Young, Mary Hemmings, Caitlin Keyte, Poppy Clements, Erin Aggett, Laila Dimmock and Bella Dorrington.
