Eleven teams took part in a frenetic Quad Kids Athletics competition at Belper School on Tuesday evening!
Athletes were tasked with competing in four events testing their skills across the full spectrum of athletics, a 75m sprint, a 600m run, standing long jump and a javelin throw with scores recorded for every single athlete – totalling almost 450 individual scores!
Belper School sports leaders did an amazing job keeping tabs on the scores while SSP staff managed the running of the events

Over 250 students from 21 different schools had the opportunity to take part in this years swim gala at Belper Leisure Centre across three time slots

This led to three seperate champions across the gala but every school and student deserves credit for an outstanding standard of swimming
Congratulations to everyone who took part
