Following the vault competition for Year 8 pupils at the start
of the week, Year 7 Pupils also got to show off their gymnast
skills by competing in the final of their annual gym
Ten pupils took part in the final of this year's competition.
From September to February, boys work on their floor work in their
PE lesson and put together a sequence made up of six balances and
travelling movements. Each pupil across the five forms is then
judged and marked on their sequence.
This year, the ten boys performing at the highest level,
progressed to the final, which was viewed by the whole year group.
The boys were marked on their sequences by PE staff, who after
tough consideration decided that the gold medal should go to
William Hinchliffe, the silver to James Yearn, and the bronze to
Mikaash Halai. The trophy and medals were awarded to the three
winners by the Headmaster; the seven other contestants all received
certificates of achievement.
Mr Matt Johnson, Head of PE, was one of the judges. He said:
"This year's final was very close, with very little difference in
points from last place to the winner. All finalists should be
applauded for their hard work and determination in getting to the
final. Well done."
