The prom marked the end of a busy and successful year at the Crowle based academy.

As well as academic achievements the academy also celebrated a milestone moment in the leisure centre project.

Work is continuing on the Axholme North Leisure Centre development and the latest part to be completed is the 9v9 artificial grass pitch. The 9v9 pitch is floodlit with three smaller pitches marked out as well.

A Spokesman for Axholme Academy said: “The pitch looks fantastic and our students can’t wait to use it for a variety of sports including football and hockey. The leisure centre as a whole is on schedule for an autumn 18 completion.”
