Cromer Academy students selected for UEA’s North Norfolk Partnership media team

Eight students from Cromer Academy were chosen to represent North Norfolk Partnership's media team at the Norfolk School Games last month.

The games were held at the University of East Anglia on June 18-19, with eight partnerships from regions around the county competing against each other.

The event involved over 2000 primary and secondary school students.

After the opening ceremony the media team was given the opportunity to interview former athlete and world record holder for javelin Steve Backley and Olympic gymnast Luke Folwell - special guests at the event.

A selection of Cromer Academy's athletes were also selected to represent North Norfolk as part of the track and field team.
