Year 9 pupil awarded bronze medal at World Agility Open Championships

Competing for Team England, Ruby showcases exceptional talent to secure podium position at international event

Northampton High School is full of talented students, whose varied passions never fail to amaze our staff and school community!

Last August, Ruby (Year 9) was selected as one of the 4 juniors to compete at the World Agility Open Championships for Team England! After a long wait following a successful selection process, Ruby attended the championships a few weeks ago.

Throughout the week, competitors had to run lots of courses and perform consistently well throughout. There were roughly 30 countries in attendance and Ruby’s fantastic performance impressed the judges enough to secure a Bronze medal in the junior category! Amongst thousands of competitors in the adults category, we managed to keep a top position until near the end, until finally finishing 5th in the Biathlon class!

Reflecting on the competition, she commented “I can safely say it was the most amazing experience!”.
