Queen's AcademyWe are celebrating!  Eight Year 11 boys have achieved their Sports Leaders UK Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership at the Queen's Academy Awards.

An one in particular stood out; Billy Cassells was honoured with a special Spirit of Leadership Award, recognition from the course tutors of his exceptional level of participation.

The Level 1 award was the culmination of a three year programme the boys followed during years 8 -10, organised by the Widening Participation Unit at Queen's University. 

The objective of the programme is to give pupils a taste of university life and encourage them to aspire to third level education. As an official Queen's Academy School, Bangor Academy enjoys a close relationship with QUB in pursuing the ethos of widening participation and all the pupils who take part always enthuse about the experience.

Look out for updates here and on our social media feeds about other programmes which are ongoing throughout Years 8, 9, 10 and Year 13.
