Fitness suite goes live!

Mr Challiss, Head of PE reports:

“The Academy’s PE block contained 2 classrooms that were a great resource but were underused. So we decided to take on the somewhat daunting task of converting them into a Cardio Gym, as a department, with no other outside help."

After knocking through an opening in the middle and creating a walk through, myself and my team spent countless early mornings and evenings painting and improving the space into a lovely new gym. We have used our old gym’s equipment as well as adding new cross fit equipment to keep up with modern times. A new media Hub and ICT equipment means students can train and improve their personal fitness both in lessons and during club times. The TV and yoga zones are already proving popular with our students who are even more motivated to get fit! We will continue to add new equipment and update the area throughout the year to maximise its potential.”
