King’s School pupils are full of bounce
KING’S ruled at the annual Peterborough Schools Trampolining Competition.
They won three of the seven individual titles up for grabs at Ken Stimpson Community School to emerge narrow overall winners from last year’s team champions Arthur Mellows Village College (AMVC).
Teams from Ken Stimpson, Thomas Deacon Academy, King’s School, Arthur Mellows Village College, Hampton College and The Peterborough School took part with over 80 students from Years 7-12 competing in Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Elite groups. Medals were presented to the top three performers in each group.
Matt Gladders from King’s was in top form, performing two excellent routines in the Elite group to win the Peterborough Schools Elite Championship title.
Daniel Grieves from Hampton College and Jamie Skinner from AMVC also put in strong performances to finish second and third respectively making it an all-boys top three.
Luke Hagerty and Hannah Brigham from King’s set the standard in the Years 7-9 Advanced group taking first and second places respectively with Indya Twigg from The Peterborough School finishing third.
In the Years 10 and above Advanced group Ken Stimpson performers Grace Barnett and Jimmy O’dare clinched the top two spots with their high-scoring routines, while Arthur Mellows Village College dominated the Novice group with Rebecca Jones and Isabella Wilding finishing in first and second.
The top placings in the Intermediate groups were shared between Ken Stimpson, AMVC and King’s with Cara Termine from AMVC winning the Years 7 and 8 group, Fenella Thursby from Kings the Year 9 and Isobel Thompson from Ken Stimpson the Years 10 and above.
