Fairfield crowned champions in athletics final

Pupils at Fairfield Academy are celebrating after finishing in first place at the North East Lincolnshire Indoor Athletics Final.   

The competition, held at Franklin College, saw pupils from Year 3 and 4 compete in a number of track and field events to become overall winners.

Events included an obstacle course relay, standing long jump and soft javelin. 

Mrs Carn, Headteacher, said: “We are extremely proud of our pupils. To do so well in such a large variety of events is a fantastic achievement and shows what talented young athletes we have at Fairfield Academy.” 

Both the Year 5/6 and the Year 3/4 teams will now represent North East Lincolnshire at the County competition. It will be the first time a school has sent both teams to the event.

Mrs Carn added: “We are thrilled to be representing our county and I wish each and every one of our pupils the greatest success on the day.”
