On Monday 13th January Vernon Samuels visited the school as part of Sky’s Living For Sport initiative. Sky Sports Living for Sport is a free secondary schools initiative that uses sport stars and sport skills to:

  • Boost confidence
  • Change behaviors
  • Increase attainment
  • Improve life skills

As part of the initiative schools are assigned an Athlete mentor (Vernon Samuels) who supports the school over the course of the project.  During his initial visit Vernon spent time talking with the students from Years 8 & 9 who will be involved in the project and also gave an inspirational talk to Year 11.  Vernon will be returning to school later in the term to run some sports sessions with the students.  In the mean time you can find out more him by following this link:
