Aspire Academy entered two teams for the  last week, held at YMCA in St Annes.

Mr Barnhurst accompanied Tyler, Gabriela, Adhena and Jairus in the Year 9 team and Jayjay, Jennifer, Lukas and Giulio in the Year 10 team.

The Year 10 team came second, narrowly missing out to Armfield Academy, against some extremely tough competition in the shape of AKS, St Bedes, St Annes Grammar, Baines, LSA, amongst other schools, and so did really well to place.

Mr Barnhurst added: "Both teams conducted themselves exemplary and were a credit to Aspire Academy, working really hard and representing us fantastically."
