A Day To Celebrate

"A Day To Celebrate" The Dukeries Academy Sports Day 2015

With Mr Byrom (Head of PE) banking on the weather forecasters having a Michael Fish, The Dukeries Academy Sports Day 2015 was given the green light.  With students from year 7, 8, 9 and 10 competing in track and field events over the course of the afternoon, parents and staff were treated to a real mix of athletic talent.  As is tradition our students were grouped in vertical tutor sets e.g. 7.1, 8.1, 9.1 and 10.1 being assigned a country from an upcoming sporting event, this year being the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
