This year, school sport has been drastically affected  by COVID restrictions. We have been unable to host, organise or attend any of the competitions that we would during a 'normal' year.

But this week was different and gives us hope for many different reasons. Mr Bibby, Associate Assistant Head and Curriculum Leader of PE sums it up perfectly:

"We are immensely proud of our students at Alder for their performances and contributions at the Tameside Athletics this week. To achieve what our students have this year is phenomenal and the pride our students showed when representing Alder is truly exceptional.

However, the greatest joy taken from this week has to be seeing young people, regardless of the school that they attend; taking part in school sport, enjoying themselves, winning medals, smiling and cheering on students from all schools. The atmosphere at the event was amazing and I'm sure will be a day that will be remembered for a long time."  

Congratulations to all of our medallists but also to those who took part and contributed to the points total with their effort, determination and pride in our school.
