Gymnastics Success

 On Tuesday 2 February, 70 students from across the city gathered at Phoenix Gymnastics Centre for the first Peterborough Schools Gymnastics Competition in years. The competition was two-fold, with an individual floor and vault competition for gymnasts who train regularly with clubs outside of school, alongside a team gym competition for groups of students who enjoy gymnastics and only take part in school.

As well as Jack Hunt students competing successfully in both competitions, a separate group of student volunteers did an excellent job of facilitating the smooth running of the event, as scorers, judging assistants, photographers and warm up marshals.  

It was wonderful to see how much gymnastic talent Peterborough has and for the gymnasts to be able to compete representing their schools.

Top Jack Hunt performances were:

Chloe Peacock 
1st in Advanced Floor and 3rd in Advanced Vault.

Katie Morton 
2nd in Advanced Floor.

Year 8 team - Sinead Gray, Jasmine Peake-Martin, Jess Silva and Paige Boreham 
Year 7 girls  - Kira Hughes and Lucy Scotney
