Crest Awards Achievements
Last Weekend a Banchory Academy team travelled to Derbyshire to compete in the British Schools Orienteering Championships ,
The Banchory Academy team came 2nd overall, out of 56 'large' secondary schools from across the UK. It's a superb result from a young team of only 10 children, of which the best 9 results from each school counted towards their overall result. The first place school had 60 runners. We also had 1st position in the S1/2 boys team of Joe Wright, Luke Graham and John Getliff. Click here to view individual results of the event.
