Sixth form students across the Unity Schools Partnership have come together to take part in a special annual challenge event.

The trust’s Sixth Form Challenge day pitted hosts Thomas Gainsborough School against Haverhill Community Sixth Form, St Edward’s Academy in Romford and Felixstowe Academy, which is joining Unity from September.

Events included a University Challenge-style general knowledge quiz, public speaking and engineering, physical and creative activities.

Kenny Alexander, director of sixth form at Thomas Gainsborough School, said: “It is great to have an event that brings together sixth form students across the Unity Schools Partnership.

“We choose activities that represent the balance of subjects that are offered across each school.

It is meant to be a nice mix between fun and competition and the students all did themselves, and their schools, proud.”

The day, which was sponsored by Observatory the Opticians and William Wardale Opticians, started with a speech from Great Britain wheelchair basketball Paralympian Wendy Smith and ended with Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard narrowly being crowned the overall winners.
