Astor's PE Elite


This group comprises of Year 7 students who have shown a combination of sporting prowess, organisation, sportsmanship, reliability and potential leadership qualities.


As these young people will form the backbone of our gifted and talented register and represent Astor at both matches and by running sports events around the region and county, they have to be role models in behaviour, uniform standards and effort in PE, other subjects and around the college generally.


They have done us proud this year with successful rounders, football, netball and athletics teams. They were Astor’s ambassadors at the ‘Pass the Passion’ sporting festival and had a great day out at Tree Jumpers.


In questionnaires, the students have commented that it has helped them improve their behaviour or effort in other subjects as well as PE.


Well done to them all and good luck to these students who are on the verge of being invited to join this squad next year.
