Year 8 girls indoor athletics team make county final
The Year 8 girls indoor athletics team at Debden Park High School is into the county final for a third successive year after winning the district competition.
Debden Park hosted the district indoor athletics competition, which was run by the school's sports leaders, on Friday (March 4).
Teams of boys and girls from Year 7 and Year 8 competed in track and field events in a bid to secure a trip to the county event.
The Year 8 girls won their competition with the Year 8 boys narrowly missing out on a final spot.
Head of PE Jen Perry said "All our students were fantastic and we are very proud of the Year 8 girls. This will be the third time in a row we have got to the county finals and we look forward to the girls representing us in Southend on March 18."
