The Shuttleworth College Basketball Academy has developed a strong squad of talented players.

And as a result, the college teams are starting to impress in local competitions.

The Under 16s and Under 14s teams have recently won the Burnley Schools’ Tournaments, winning all their games.

Over 25 students aged 11-16 now attend the Academy on Thursday evenings, which runs in partnership with Burnley Basketball Club.

Meanwhile, Shuttleworth College Year 10 students Devon Preston and Clelia Sudderick have successfully completed Young Ambassors Training from the Youth Sports Trust.

Andy Stubbs, Curriculum Leader for Sport, said: “Devon and Clelia are excellent role models in sport for our younger students.

“We are very proud of their achievement.”
