Outstanding year of sport

St Margaret’s Church of England Academy in Liverpool is celebrating an incredible year of sporting success.
It has been a first class year of sport for Aigburth secondary school, St Margaret’s Academy. With football, rugby, basketball, cricket, athletics, badminton, table-tennis and fitness all on offer, pupils have plenty of options to choose from.
The school places an emphasis on keeping sport fun and accessible, encouraging pupils of all abilities to take part, by hosting regular charity and fancy dress football games.
Since opening its cricket and sports centre in 2006, St Margaret’s has reaped the benefits, as the facilities have provided students with the opportunity to develop and excel in the sporting field, both in class and during numerous extra-curricular activities.
Particularly impressive is the Sixth Form’s football team, First XI Football, which has seen an incredible revival over the past 18 months in the hands of its new manager, Greg McLean.
A former student of the school now working in the Sixth Form, Greg has led the team to 31 victories to date, with an incredible 176 goals scored in 44 games.
This summer, the team lifted the Merseyside College’s NDS Trophies Championship League title, which is testament to the hard work and dedication of all members of the team. The team also reached the semi-finals of the Everton Shield, which is also an impressive feat.
Greg McLean, the First XI football manager, said: “In my first year in charge of the team, I couldn’t have asked for a better group of players.
“They have shown great commitment and enthusiasm and our success is all down to their hard work.
“Our football team and entire sport curriculum is one to be proud of and winning the Educate Award topped off an incredibly exciting year for us all.”
