Monday, April 15, 2019

Students from Wold Academy in Hull, part of David Ross Education Trust, have been crowned Primary Cup champions. The students played a series of netball and football matches against the Trust’s other primary schools across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

The Wold footballers won all their group matches with only 2 conceded goals in the whole tournament. One of the students, Charlie finished as a top scorer with 15 goals. The netball team finished third, representing a great team effort. The school also collected ‘The Most Improved Academy Award’ on the day, which is a testament to all the hard work put in by all the students and staff at Wold Academy.

Carl Salvidge, Sports Co-ordinator at Wold Academy, said “Winning the Primary Cup is a huge success for our school.  We have really increased the range of sports and extra-curricular clubs on offer at Wold Academy, which has resulted in greater participation, more competitions and the popularity of sport in school has risen hugely. We couldn’t be more proud of our students’ achievements in the last few weeks and we will strive for more sporting success at Wold!”

In addition to winning the Trust’s Primary Cup, Wold Academy finished 3rd in the boys football tournament, which is part of the Hull Active Schools programme. The boys had won their qualifying event to get to the finals and came 3rd out of 40 schools in total. The girls football team finished 3rd out of 36 schools in the Hull Active Schools tournament too, with one student finishing the tournament as its top scorer.
