Over the past few weeks, Nathan Cook has been in school working with our ‘gifted and talented’ students. Nathan is working towards his ‘UKCC Level 3 Senior Coach’ qualification, and is training for the University British Championships later this month. He has a wealth of knowledge to offer our students and is very impressive when he carries out demonstrations too; a double back somersault with half a twist is but a warm up move!

It’s an exciting opportunity for our students, who have been working to develop individual moves, including front, back and twisting somersaults. Some students will be using their moves as part of GCSE Physical Education examinations. Those taking part across the range of year groups, include: Amy Cox, Abigail Caron, Paige Gostick, Morgan Lavender, Kasha McKay and Christina Clifton, to name but a few.

Paige Gostick and Page Hewitt have been working with one of our photography teachers, Mr Vaughan, within school to photo-shoot some training sessions and to develop their photography and journalistic skills – they have taken some amazing shots!
