Castle View Academy Student Named British Wheelchair Basketball’s “Female Player of the Year”

Castle View Academy is celebrating after one of its very own students was named British Wheelchair Basketball’s “Female of the Year”.

Year 11 student Maddison Martin, who was born with Spina Bifida, was given the prestigious Peter Jackson Female Player of the Year Award at the British Junior Wheelchair Championships at the beginning of August.

Maddie, who was inspired to get into wheelchair basketball after watching the 2012 London Paralympics, has had a highly successful year competing in the national GB team as well as the South East regional team.

The award recognised how rapidly Maddie has risen up the ranks of wheelchair basketball.  Starting her career at an accessible disability sports club where she played for fun, Maddie has trained exceptionally hard to become an U24 GB International and U24 European Gold medal winner.  Her incredible journey has been shared across the global wheelchair basketball community with well-renowned Turkish Wheelchair Basketball player Murat Sultan writing a piece in Turkish media.  Japanese Para Sports Magazine has also recently posted about Maddie and her amazing journey.

Maddie has now set her sights on being selected for the GB Team at the Tokyo Paralympics next year.  She’ll be training hard to achieve this goal whilst also studying for her GCSEs next summer.

Christian Down, Principal of Castle View Academy, said:
We are all incredibly proud of what Maddie is achieving.  Her determination to overcome any obstacle and reach her goals is truly astounding.  She is an inspiration to everyone within the school and we wish her all the best as she seeks to secure a place at the Paralympics.

Year 5 Witches, Wizards and Wands Festival

last week we were delighted to welcome year 5 students from our local feeder schools to CVA for our Witches, Wizards and Wands festival. Students spent the day taking part in workshops which included writing spells, working out magic numbers, making up potions and there was even a spot of Quidditch!

I just wanted to say how amazing yesterday was for our children. The Harry Potter day was truly a magical experience for our children. The staff and year 11 pupils that led us round were amazing, a credit to your school. It was such a lovely way for our children to see the change at Castle View. The staff had obviously put a lot of effort in and it was lovely to see all the different subjects being used to inspire the children. I am hopeful that it happens again next year as I will be highly recommending it to our head.

 

Thank you once again for this wonderful experience for our children.
