The well supported final was a close affair with Goldington beating Bedford Girls to win the tournament. PE teacher Leanne Chapman praised the performance of the academy girls and the competitive spirit they showed.

The academy recently welcomed local author Julia Jarman who inspired year 5 and 6 pupils with her stories and she showed pupils her story plans. The children had lots of questions and left with plenty of new books to read.
