James Reid (Form V) won a bronze medal in the Sainsbury’s School Games in Sheffield. This was a remarkable achievement considering he had just moved up a weight category (under 81kgs) and was fighting the best boys from around the United Kingdom and Brazil in the Under 19 class.

He was the only competitor from Northern Ireland to bring home a medal in Judo.  Everyone in Belfast Royal Academy is thrilled by James’s continued success in Judo.


The B.R.A. Golf team of Kyle Higginson, Conor Magee, Stuart McComb and Pierce Clements competed in the Irish Schools’ Matchplay Championships qualifier earlier in the week.


Academy old boy, and Ulster & Ireland international, Iain Henderson helped the Rugby Club officially announce its sponsorship deal with Bruces Hill Gourmet Farm Shop in a rather unusual way at Roughfort this week….
