Ark Academy hosts Premier League Trophy

The Barclays Premier League trophy took a little detour before it ended up in the hands of Chelsea FC....visiting us at Ark Academy!

Being the sports lovers and avid football fans that we are, there was no shortage of students and (overexcitable!) staff desperate to pose with the cup. Only a lucky few were chosen and certainly made the most of their experience; we're not sure what they enjoyed more, the trophy or selfies with the Barclays blue falcon :)

Year 11 student Haider said: 'Only the best teams in the league win the trophy so it is a real privilege to see it live.'

We were impressed with our Year 10 Sports Ambassadors who helped in the smooth running of the event and were very helpful in supervising and escorting Year 8 to the hall.

The friendly falcon proved a popular mascot...

....with adults and children alike!

Thanks to Barclays for letting us borrow the trophy for the afternoon - we had a great time!
