Kirk Balk Academy students shine at South Yorkshire Games

Over 40 students proudly represented Kirk Balk Academy and Barnsley last week in the South Yorkshire Schools Winter Games at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.

Throughout the day there were some excellent performances displayed against tough opposition by all our students in both gymnastics and sports hall athletics.

The gymnastics squad had an outstanding routine and finished 5th overall. In the sports hall athletics the Y7 boys finished a respectable 6th in their competition. Finally, to complete what had already been an amazing day for our students, there were three teams whose fantastic performances earned them all individual medals. Our Year 7&8 girls and Year 8 boys sports hall athletics teams all achieved 3rd place in their events.

This is another huge sporting success for the academy! Well done to all involved!
