Talented pupils at a Letchworth school have been celebrating after winning a prestigious athletics championship.

Athletes from Pixmore Junior School represented North Herts during the coveted finals – beating off competition from nearly 500 other schools.

The tournament, held at Oaklands School in St Albans, saw 24 youngsters from Pixmore shine in a range of different discplines, with the girls and boys teams triumphing for the second year running,

The children qualified after triumphing over schools in Letchworth, Baldock and Hitchin earlier in the year.

Adam Willard, Pixmore’s PE co-ordinator told CometSport: “The children made me so proud as all their hard work and desire to be the best at their event paid off.

“One child threw a javelin so far it hit the back wall of the sports hall.

“The children and parents are very proud.”
