Hall Mead pupils competed in the National Schools’ Trampoline Championships in Gateshead last month and impressed.

The event took place on March 18 and resulted in the students driving up a day early to prepare for the competition.

In order to qualify for this prestigious event, teams had to achieve a first or second place at a Regional competition for the whole of London and individuals had to achieve a podium place.

This was then followed by a Zonal competition against the entire south of Great Britain, which was held in Somerset in February.

Hall Mead’s ‘elite’ under-19 team containing Adam Dobbins, Alex Dubar, Thomas Lammin and Callum Honey, all Year 10 or 11, unfortunately were not strong enough on the day to gain a podium place.

Dobbins, who also qualified as an individual, in the under-14 ‘intermediate’ group didn’t manage a podium despite some great performances and Year Nine’s Mack McAuley also unfortunately couldn’t claim a podium-finish.

Hall Mead did win plenty of other medals with the under-14 ‘novice’ team containing Year Eight or Nine pupils in Jonny Cavanagh, Matthew Cox, Jack Scotchmer and Daniel Surridge and they won a national bronze medal for their fantastic efforts.

The best result of the day for the school was the under-19 ‘intermediate’ team of Year 10 or 11 pupuls Ben Calder, Max Durrell and Sam Mezoori who against the odds, performed some excellent routines and achieved silver medals and the title of national runners-up.

Hall Mead’s Senior House Turor Gary Lewis said: “Well done to all the boys who took part and thank you to the parents who supported the boys by making the long drive up north.”
