In the athletics, Greneway claimed a deserved gold medal after impressing in the standing triple jump and long jump, indoor javelin, speed bounce and running.

Jade Roberts, Alayiah Kenealy and Georgie Fuller came fourth in the boccia, while Alice Atkins, Emily Griffin, Joe Carpenter, Karl Marriott and Ben Batchelor secured a silver medal in the table tennis.

The boys' football team managed to finish fourth, with the girls' team impressing with another silver medal.
