    Published 05/06/24

    We are thrilled to share that Sofia Bell, a Year 7 student, recently competed in her very first triathlon! Inspired by her dad's completion of his first Ironman last year, Sofia decided to give triathlons a try and hasn't looked back since.

    Sofia participated in the UK Henley Kids Triathlon, organised by UKTriathlons, in the Silver Category. This challenging event included a 100m swim, a 4km bike ride, and a 2km run. Sofia is an avid swimmer and cyclist and often takes part in the Salcey Forest park run on weekends.

    Sofia demonstrated incredible determination and perseverance, completing the triathlon in an impressive time of 42 minutes and 8 seconds. What an incredible display of athletics!

    Looking ahead, Sofia hopes to compete in the next level in August in York. 

    Congratulations, Sofia, on this remarkable accomplishment! We look forward to seeing you continue to excel in your future sporting endeavours.

    Published 25/01/24

    Freya began her journey only a little over a year ago, competing in cross country and on the track with the summer highlight becoming the 600m U11 girls County Champion. 

    Freya exhibited exceptional performance and won in the South Northants and Daventry District Schools Cross Country Championships for Year 6. Despite facing challenges in the Northants County Schools Championships, where both Years 6 and Year 7 participated, Freya displayed remarkable resilience. Following an early incident where she was pushed and fell to the ground, she navigated through a 2.6km muddy and hilly course, strongly finishing in 16th place and earning her county selection.

    She will be competing in the upcoming competition on 3rd February for the inter-counties Anglian Cup. It's wonderful to see Freya's dedication and sportsmanship throughout these events, and we can't wait to see all that she does. Congratulations to Freya on her achievements!
