A summer of sporting success

29 September 2023

One of Pontville School’s rising sports stars, Elliot, showcased his incredible talent after competing at the renowned England Athletics competitions during the six-week holiday.

The dedicated and passionate athlete was invited to compete in the U15 & U17 Event Championships and Para Championships event, competing against a GB international and some of the country's top athletes of their age.

Remarkably, Elliot achieved a triumphant bronze win in the high jump, jumping 1.80m, ranking him 6th best in the U15 boy category in the UK - how impressive is that?

His accomplishments don’t stop there. He has demonstrated his dedication to the sport after competing at many other events throughout the year, including:

  1. Finalist in English Schools National Championships - High Jump July (2023)
  2. Merseyside County Champion - High Jump: (May 2023)
  3. Lancashire Schools County Champion - High Jump: (June 2023)

Justine Sims, Head Teacher, commented:

“Elliot’s sporting achievement is fantastic. Speaking on behalf of the school, we are all so proud of his amazing talents.”

We can't wait to see what the future holds, but the only thing left to say is watch out, Usain Bolt!
