Lawn Manor Academy pupils marked the end of term with two days of sports and musical activities.

Monday saw the whole school come together to compete in the Sports Day, with a mix of traditional field events such as 100m, 200m and 400m relay races, plus fun games like tug of war, dodgeball and ultimate frisbee.

The competing teams received house points according to their positions. Fitzroy House was awarded the Sports Day prize for the most points won during the games and won the overall house competition for the year.

Pupils enjoyed a festival on their playing field on Tuesday, with shows from the school's music and performing arts classmates. The bands and solo performers were from the GCSE Music course, which requires them to perform as part of either a band or solo. In order to do this, in addition to the Lawn Manor festival, the groups have also been taken to top performance locations such as the Cavern Club in Liverpool and Abbey Road Studios in London to perform in front of a paying audience.

Assistant headteacher Marek Koza said: “After a challenging year for all of our students, the Sports Day and festival have proved to be a great chance for them to relax in their bubbles and celebrate the achievements and excellence that we are so proud of at Lawn Manor Academy.

“This is the first year we’ve held an outdoor festival, although there have been concerts through our enrichment weeks too. Having the chance to perform to a large audience like this, as well as in such prestigious places like the Cavern Club, helps our performers to become more professional and it takes them to another level which is reflected in their learning as it builds their desire to get better and better.”
