Tewkesbury Academy proudly hosted the highly anticipated annual Cheltenham District B Team Festival, showcasing the talent of over 47 teams from Year 8 to Year 11. This event provided a unique opportunity for students who may not typically secure spots in their first teams, offering them a chance to proudly represent their school in a competitive atmosphere.
Throughout the week-long festival, more than 700 students enthusiastically participated. The emphasis was not only on competition but also on fostering a sense of teamwork, skill development, and overall enjoyment of sports.
One distinctive feature of the event was the involvement of student referees. Not only did this add an extra layer of student engagement, but it also aimed to cultivate leadership skills among the participants.
David Graham-Kevan, Head of Physical Education at Tewkesbury Academy, said: “It was a cold but very enjoyable and satisfying event to host and be involved with. It was a great team effort by the PE department and the wider extracurricular team.”
