Resilience and Anxiety Workshops
Please see below for further information on some Resilience and Anxiety Workshops that are due to be held at AKS Junior School.

EFL Cup Under 11 Tournament
Our A-Team, along with 32 other schools, were invited to attend the Under 11’s EFL Kid’s Cup Football Tournament which was held on Friday at Poolfoot Farm - the home of Fleetwood Town.
