Gale Common Motocross Day

Pupils from the Academy took part in an off road motorbike riding activity during two dates in October and November. Some of the pupils were being rewarded for good attitude to school and learning and got to use the school’s motorbikes. Other students from the Academy came with their own machines along with their parents. The activity was run in partnership with Wakefield Council’s Youth Support Services who funded the hire of the venue through a youth group in Portobello.


Ms Baker impressed the lads, not having ridden even a push bike in 5 years and never ridden a motorbike in her life, she was riding the track with the experts by the end of the day and even pulled a wheelie !
