A student from East Point Academy has shot to medal victory in a major competition of pistol prowess.

Year 11 student Harry Haywood took the silver medal at the East of England heat of the British Shooting Schools Pistol Championships, held at St Felix School, Southwold, on Wednesday, November 14.

His success means he has qualified for the national finals, to be held in Stoke Mandeville in January.

Harry took up the sport three years ago and fits in several training sessions a week around his studies.

PE teacher Harriette Milburn said: “This is a great achievement for Harry, who has worked hard for his success.

“We wish him the best of luck with the next stage of the competition.”
