Sports Presentation Evening
On Thursday 13th July 200 students and parents packed into the main hall for our annual Sports Presentation Evening. This was the first time the event has been a sell out and we could have sold even more tickets!
Special guest for the evening was professional jockey George Chaloner who at 25 years old has over 1500 senior rides, including a Royal Ascot winner in 2014 that George referred to as like winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Unfortunately George had a terrible fall at Newcastle in February, travelling at 46mph on fibre sand. The result of this was a broken back and George is now full of metal, unsure whether he will ride again. After watching some footage of George winning at Royal Ascot, Mr Beesley interviewed him on stage and he was able to share some experiences and give advice to our students who are budding athletes.
