Miss Eales and Miss Parker took 13 Year 8 girls on a netball tour to Barcelona in the May break. During the trip they received training from Amanda Newton (ex England player) and took part in a tournament against other English Schools. They were the youngest students at the tournament but held their own and came 2nd, missing out on first place by one goal in the final minutes of the last game. The students were very well behaved throughout the trip and were a credit to the Academy and their year group. Each student received a medal and Megan Jones was given an extra award by the coaches for being Player of the Week. The girls also had a chance to relax after all this exertion at Port Aventura Theme Park just outside of Barcelona, where a good time was had by all.
