Golden Mile Challange

Over 6000 miles walked

Over a four-week period, the Academy has been competing in the Ormiston Trust Golden Mile Challenge event! The aim was to see which academy could secure the highest possible participation percentage of pupils, staff and parents walking as many laps of our Golden Mile track as possible.
The children were also challenged to see just how far they could walk together if their miles were placed on a map and the results were incredible! Over the four-week period, together we managed to walk over 6000 miles – the equivalent from Gorleston to Peru. We were overjoyed to finish in overall second place. Congratulations to one of our Year Two pupils, Yusuf, who also won a special Golden Mile Pupil Award for his fantastic individual effort!
