Leeds Schools’ Climbing Competition 2016

St. Mary’s students last week took part in the 2016 Leeds Schools’ Climbing Competition at the Depot Climbing Centre, Leeds.


  • Fifteen Leeds schools entered the Team Competition and individual competitors were entered into KS3, KS4 and KS5 Male and Female. 
  • Accompanied by Mr Lancaster, all our students performed admirably.  
  • Stephen Cooper, Year 9, finished fourth in the KS3 age group
  • John Cooper, Year 11, finished fourth in the KS4 age group.  
  • Excellent climbs from Year 11 team members Hugo Styles, Matthew Wilkinson, Joe Williams, Nathan Mansfield, Jacob Bostock and John Cracknell and Cameron Watson, Year 12, resulted in the St. Mary’s team finishing third overall.  
  • The team thoroughly enjoyed their day.  Well done to all involved.
