DRET Lockdown Cup - Results


We are delighted to share with you the overall results from the DRET Lockdown Cup competition.

Overall DRET Academy Leaderboard


Thanks to your fantastic effort and commitment to CRA and your House team we finished in 4th position across the whole trust, 33 academies in total. This is a fantastic achievement and just shows what an amazing community we have at CRA.


Despite being one of the smallest schools across the trust (we are the smallest secondary school) you have displayed all of our values to rise to the challenge. The togetherness the CRA community has is unrivalled! CRA finished 2nd across the trust for the most KM’s covered per head, the top scoring secondary school.


Top 3 schools - most KMs per head


We are also really delighted to share with you that year 10 student, Felix finished 3rd across the trust from 1,500 participants.

Each and every one who took part really did make a difference, whether it was a 1km walk with the dog or a 100km bike ride your contribution was truly valued.
