Sporting success for KGV Students (Southport)


Seven advanced level students from King George V have secured a place to represent the College in their chosen sport at the Association of Colleges (AoC) Sports National Finals.

In total, 14 KGV students competed in the AoC Sport Regional qualifiers at venues across the North West, participating in a range of sporting tournaments including Badminton, Cross Country and Football. Seven students won their regional qualifier to secure a place in the National Finals, which will be held in Newcastle in April. These students are:

Alec Scott and Max Noble – Men’s Badminton Doubles

Katie Dixon-Turner and Rachel Newnham – Women’s Badminton Doubles 

Alex Gould – Squash

Nathan Browne – Cross Country

Jordan McDonald – Swimming (50m Butterfly)

Laura Rummens, BTEC Sport Teacher at KGV, said, “Our students put on some outstanding performances in the Regional Qualifiers and their success proves that KGV is a dominating force for sport within the North West.”

“These athletes are now through to Nationals, the toughest competition in the AoC Sport Calendar, where they will compete against the best sports performers in the country.”

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students. Their hard work, dedication and motivation has paid off and they thoroughly deserve their places in the National Finals.”

KGV Students succeeded against top competitors from other Colleges in the North West including Runshaw, Winstanley and Cardinal Newman, to win places in the Finals.

Katie–Dixon Turner, a Sports Leader at the College, spoke of her success in the Women’s Badminton Doubles. She said, “I was delighted to be chosen to represent my College at the AoC regionals and I’m excited to go through to National’s for the second year running.”

“I’m looking forward to competing against other people that excel in the same sport as me and I know the weekend in Newcastle will be the highlight of my time at KGV.”
