We are delighted to announce that our school has recently signed up to the 21st Century Legacy, Be the Best you can Be Programme. The aim of the programme is to provide our pupils with the opportunity to develop their physical, mental, social/emotional and spiritual way of being and to help them recognise steps which they can take to enhance their performance in each area.
The Programme was launched at KS3 by our Athlete mentor Jenna Downing. Jenna is a former World and 10 times British inline skating champion that has overcame many obstacles on her journey to success. She shared her inspiring story with the pupils before performing some engaging and exciting skating tricks. The pupils responded really well to her visit and have embraced the programme. This has been a key factor in motivating them towards their goals and in particular they see our school as an important stage on their journey.
Coincidently, Jenna is also our Sky Sports Living for Sports Mentor and we look forward to another visit from her later this year.
