Basketball Tournament Winners!

The Academy basketball team won the Hertfordshire invitational Trophy, beating teams from Havering Sixth-Form College, Oakland’s Sixth-form College and even Hertfordshire’s University team to win the trophy!

This is a great achievement beating a team with some players 4 years older than our academy players, the players were great role models throughout the day, attending tours and meeting the basketball performance staff at the University, and what the University can offer them on their performance pathway.

This has put some of our students in a great position to be recruited by the University and offered sporting scholarships. I would like to thank the staff for allowing students to miss lessons in preparation for the tournament.
