Past Pupil Success
It is always lovely to hear how past pupils are doing and on Saturday, whilst at John Leigh Park, I bumped into a past parent who was delighted to fill me in about his daughter’s success. Past pupil Emma Simpson has been selected by UK Athletics for the Performance Pathways Programme for Triple Jump.
‘The British Athletics Performance Pathway aims to provide opportunities to prepare, confirm and support the most promising young athletes on a journey to becoming future Olympic and Paralympic medallists in 2020 and beyond.’
Emma joins past pupil Victoria Barlow who has already been selected for the Olympic squad in pole vaulting.
This means we’ll need to keep a look out for them at athletics competitions in the near future. We wish them all the best.
