Southfields Academy hosted the second Hearing Impaired /Visually Impaired Football Festival on 27thJune. 31 students from 4 separate schools took park in the event that sought to celebrate the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Inclusive Cricket London Final at Lord’s Cricket Ground

The final of the Inclusive Cricket competition organised in partnership between the Project Ability Programmes in London, The ECB and London Youth Games proved to be a great success. Following the qualifying rounds, two schools from each region qualified to play in the final at Lord’s. Southfields Academy entered an inclusive team on behalf of Central London and ended up coming 4thoverall. The competition was excellent for all involved and definitely a way forward for providing inclusive opportunities for young disabled people to play cricket.
