Sandown Bay Academy has today been recognised for our exceptional contribution to leadership development and volunteer deployment in the community. Sports Leaders UK awarded our good practice by granting us Leadership Academy status and marked the occasion with the presentation of a plaque. It is a fantastic achievement that we have secured this status and is a reflection of all the fantastic work that takes place with our sports leaders.
Heidi Jenner and Shelly Meyern from Sports Leaders UK visited the Academy today to hear about what our students get out of being sports leaders. They then went to look at a cricket tournament run by Year 9 sports leaders for pupils in Broadlea Primary School.
