The athletics teams’ performances at Emerson Park Academy have improved greatly in recent years, and the school now performs at local, county and national standard in various competitions.
To highlight a few key performances from the 2017 athletics season:
- The Havering districts athletics competition this year saw the boys’ team come an impressive third in the borough for the first time.
- In the English Schools Track and Field Cup the boys’ teams reached their third consecutive regional final in as many years, with the intermediate boys posting a score that broke into the top 18 in the country.
- In addition, at the Havering school trials many athletes were successful in securing a place to compete at the Essex Schools Championships. Congratulations to the following for their success in competing for Havering. -JJ M., Joshua L., James W., Dylan V., Grace W., Alex A., Maddie G., Olivia P., Aurika P. and Maisie T..
Our current Year 11s are the strongest and most committed Netball team to ever grace the courts of Emerson Park, they won the London Schools League playing in an U14 league in Year 9 and the following year came 2nd in the Essex Plate competition as Year 10s. This team are quickly being challenged by the standard and drive of the current Year 7 teams. They have an A, B and C team all competing against local schools in Havering as well as the A team competing in the Essex Schools Cup. Playing against some particularly hard competition unfortunately they did not make it through the final round this year, however, there is always next season especially with the help of our up and coming Netball star Aurika who has recently been selected to join the England Netball pathway by successfully being selected for the South Essex Satellite Academy. Our Year 8, 9 & 10 Netball teams have also had fantastic seasons playing in Havering competitions and in end of season rallies with some stand out performances from the nominated students throughout the season.
