We are delighted to share some recent sporting success stories and accolades that some of our Students at Kearsley Academy have achieved. The successes are based in a wide variety of sports including wrestling, cycling and trampolining. We are always extremely proud of our students here at Kearsley Academy and the recent successes adds to that, especially when all the effort and extra training that these students have applied has come to fruition with the sporting honours that they have attained.
Aiden Lawrence Year 11
Aiden has been performing track and road cycling from a young age. He has worked tirelessly in training and has recently won the Youth Tour of Scotland. Not only that, Aiden also travelled to Belgium representing Green Jersey RT and again won this race against other international competitors, Well done Aiden, an amazing achievement!
Malachi O'Neil Year 11
Malachi has recently been competing in the Nationals Wrestling Competition in Ireland. Malachi has worked extremely hard to ensure he is within his weight category, cycling to and from school and training each evening. At the National competition he competed against his peers, some of which were more experienced and older athletes, this didn't stop Malachi from reaching the Finals where he unfortunately lost against the British Champion who in fact is his wrestling coach and mentor.
