Olympian Craig Heap visits Highfield

6th June 2017

Craig Heap, Olympic Gymnast, visited us today. This was part of the Sky Living For Sport initiative. 

Sky Sports Living for Sport has been delivered in partnership with Youth Sport Trust since 2003 and central to the programme were the team of over 135 world-class Athlete Mentors, who work directly with students to inspire them to achieve their best, whatever their ability or situation. 

It was founded on the belief that sport has the power to transform young people's lives to help them build practical skills and self-confidence and started off as a way of improving behaviour and grew into something from which anyone or any group could benefit.

Craig Heap worked with our Year 8 Active Boys Writers Group in the morning and a group of Key Stage 2 Gymnasts in the afternoon. It was a pleasure having Craig in our school.
