Outstanding performances on the day came from Year 11 student Cody Parkin, who gave a great all-round effort in a variety of events while Chris Godridge, also Year 11, won both the 800m and 1500m.

Richard Partington and Terri Oldfield also received plaudits for their commitment on the day.

A spokesperson for the school said: “The first Trinity Academy sports day was an overwhelming success with a great atmosphere and friendly rivalry between academy colleges.”
