John Spence Trampoline Club & Sports Academy

The John Spence trampoline club meets every Tuesday evening after school. Such is the popularity of the club that we have a waiting list of students wanting to take up vacated places and become involved.

The most able performers are invited to join the school’s very successful trampoline academy that meets before school on Wednesday mornings.

Coach Sean Dixon and assistant Di Williams have helped our students to success in both local and regional competitions.

At the 2012/13 North Eastern Regional Finals, North Tyneside collected their greatest haul of awards ever. They are now the second strongest region in the North East losing out to Gateshead (5 year champions) on points.

The John Spence Trampolining Academy is the main reason for this, contributing to eleven individual medals (5 Gold) and 3 Team Medals (1 Gold): by far the greatest amount of honours ever received by an individual school.

Without the investment in the Trampoline Academy this would never have been achievable.

The hard work of the pupils continues week in week out, always training and preparing for the next competition. It is a sport that does not exclude. There is competition at all levels of ability and also an after school group that can act as a feeder group to the academy or simply as a way of providing pupils another opportunity to exercise, learn new skills, and make new friends.

The work ethic in the Academy is: work hard, have fun and achieve.
