Both pupils are Young Ambassadors. This part of the London 2012 legacy established by the Youth Sport Trust (YST) when London won the right to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The programme has now become embedded in our schools. Young people are now aspiring to, and striving to become, the next Young Ambassadors in their school. The role of a Young Ambassador is to increase participation in PE and school sport, promote the positive values sport can develop and be an advocate and role model for PE and school sport.

Alex and Emily are fully involved with the School Sports Council and regularly organise team competitions for the inter-house events. Well done to them both on an excellent achievement!
