Primary pupils from several schools across the Lincolnshire area enjoyed a day of mentoring by PE students at Louth Academy.

As part of their Sports Leaders qualification, the Year 9 students acted as coaches for primary children from Years 5 and 6, with 180 children from the area’s larger primaries competing with each other in one session, and 150 children from the smaller schools in another session.
