Scotts Sports Stars
At Scotts we have lots of children who commit to sports clubs outside of school and achieve a high level in these, so here is where we will update you on their latest achievements.
Reiss - Year 4
Reiss had been playing in the development squad for Charlton since he was 7. However, in May, he got selected for Charlton Athletic Academy under 9's squad. His parents are very proud of him as he has to train three times a week. On a Monday, Wednesday and Friday he leaves straight from school to go to Charlton's training grounds in Kent and doesn't get home until 7.30 at night. Reiss still manages to fit in all his school home work and reading. On top of the training he plays a match on a Sunday against all different Academy's. Last week he played Colchester and this week he is travelling to Southampton!
He has just had his parents report from Charlton and he is getting on very well! So you never know, we may have a footballer in the making :-)
Tilly-May - Year 3
Tilly-May trains 7 1/2 hours a week in gymnastics. She loves her sport and regularly competes for both her club and school.
She has won a total of 11 medals to date, 2 of which were won at her first international competition held at Disneyland Paris!!
She will next year hopefully start competing at regional level and follow on from there to national level. Good luck Tilly-May!
