We will have a visitor in The Academy – Ben Pipes. He was the GB captain for the volleyball team at the London Olympics and is also an Athlete Mentor for Sky Sports Living for Sport program, a scheme we are now participating in.
During the morning, Ben will be working with a group of 20 year 8/9 students who we have selected to form our Leadership Academy in PE. They will spend some time in a classroom going through Ben’s story and also in the Sports hall doing some practical work based around leadership and leadership qualities. From this Wednesday 10th June 2015 , we will be looking to involve the students in leadership roles in PE through primary events as well as events at the Academy as well. Other students will also take part in a volleyball session with Ben.
