Olympic Athlete Luke Lennon Ford is going to visit our school!
We're very excited to be welcoming Luke Lennon-Ford to the school. Luke is one of Britain's most exciting talents on the track and is trained by Olympic Champion Linford Christie. At the age of 23 Luke has already claimed Silver at the World Indoors, Silver at the European Indoors and Silver at the European Championships. Luke Lennon-Ford will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. Much of the money that is raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes.
More about our event
Sports for schools visit 1300 primary schools nationwide a year, that is over 350,000 children each year who will forever remember the day a GB athlete visited their school. Each of the children take part in an exciting fitness circuit with an athlete and enjoy an inspirational assembly. The outcome is a great sense of achievement and being part of a scheme that has helped to raise nearly two million pounds for schools and PE equipment to date!
