'This Girl Can' at Leeds Beckett University


Competing in sport activities on campus  

Recently, Year 9 girls at Leeds City Academy took part in the annual Leeds Beckett University’s ‘This Girl Can’ event. 

Throughout the day, the girls tried out lots of new sports and activities. They started the day doing weightlifting, long jump, netball and basketball.

In the afternoon, the girls took part in Squashacise, American football, and cardio tennis. They thoroughly enjoy all the activities on offer, many saying they’d never been on a squash court before!

Some of girls were so inspired by campus life that they have said they want to come to Leeds Beckett University after they have finished school.

Mrs Turner said: “The girls were a credit to the school and spent the day with a smile on their face! They loved trying new sports and loved seeing all the amazing facilities the university had to offer.”
