well done to our teams!
Once again, coach John Fleetwood has supported our chess teams to success.
Akiva was the only state school to qualify for the Under 9 national finals of the ESPCA championships.
An under 11 team and 2 under 9 teams participated in the semi finals last weekend in Prestatyn, North Wales. The Under 11s came 3rd.
The Under 9 “A” team came joint second with Wetherby Prep and slightly behind Hallfield School, who won.
The team will take their place alongside Westminster School, St Pauls, The Hall, Dulwich,
Homefield, Wetherby and Hallfield in the grand final in Birmingham next month.
Meanwhile the Y4 A and B netball teams both came second in their respective events at their first Maccabi netball tournament.
