Kibworth Mead Academy Dec 22
It has been an action packed term of sport at Kibworth Mead Academy. Mr Hill settled in as the new Head of PE, a virtually all new PE department inspired a new dawn of sporting success and participation.
Over 400 pupils have represented the school in over 60 fixtures.
Success in Football continues
The tradition of national success in football continued with the Year 8 and Year 10 boys reaching the 4th round of the national Cup. The Year 9 team is still racking up the travel miles as they are in the fifth round. Year 10 boys won the district lead and have again progressed to the County Cup. The Year 7 team had a great to start to their school careers with five wins and just one loss.
Girl’s football has also exploded with the girls showing true commitment to training no matter what the weather! Every year group is being entered into the school’s league that starts in January.
Great to see girls getting involved
Miss Smith has inspired resurgence in Netball with 30 matches played. The Kibworth girls have shown great spirit and it has been great to see girls who have not played before getting involved. The Year 11 team has made great progress and has built a reputation nationally. This was highlighted when they were challenged by Cheltenham Ladies College and enjoyed a high-quality match.
Our U16 boy’s Table Tennis squad finished runners up in the County Cup. The Basketball and Badminton seasons are now in full swing as pupils enjoy a range of sports.
The Year 7 boy’s Rugby team showed a great team spirit, by working hard together to produce some excellent performances. Results from the tournament included two wins and one loss. All students were a credit to the school, showcasing KMA values throughout. Shout outs to Dillon, Leo, Theo, Josh and Aiden for their leadership qualities and stand out performances.
This trend will continue in the New Year as we have a busy club and fixture calendar bursting with opportunities in Futsal, Girl’s football, Indoor Cricket, swimming, rugby, volleyball and indoor athletics.
