Two students from Colne Primet Academy, Mateusz Feszler and Aiman Shah, are Pendle Champions in shot putt and javelin after the Inter-Schools Athletics Competition at Seedhill athletics track.

Each year, students from various Pendle schools come together to compete in the Inter-Schools Athletics Competition.

Students of all different levels of sporting ability, take part in friendly inter-school rivalries, building the bonds within their own teams and encouraging them to learn all about the importance of teamwork and natural competition.
