Posted by on Jan 19, 2015 in News | No Comments

The Sports Personality of the Year for 2014 – 15 at community school  is Year 10 student, Siobhan Ellyatt.

In recognition of her outstanding sporting success across a range of sports, Siobhan was presented with the Pip Miller Memorial Trophy and a monetary award by one of the Academy’s Trust Board Directors, Mr Ken Martin. Mr Martin established the Award last year in recognition of his wife – Pip Miller’s –  passion for sport and her desire to see all round sporting achievement appropriately recognised.

Head of PE, Mr Rob Hawkins, and teacher of PE, Mrs Emma Gue, praised Siobhan not just for her sporting excellence but also for the first class leadership qualities she possesses: ‘Siobhan achieved a remarkable sporting ‘double’ in the school year 2013 – 14. She was the only student who played in both the U14 and the U16 County Champion girls’ football teams. She is a fantastic role model for other students and thoroughly deserves the Sports Personality of the Year Award.’
