Elite Sports Experience Day

Sports students take part in the wonderful experience in conjunction with fellow GDST schools

On Tuesday 10 May, six students were invited to take part in the Nottingham University Elite Sports Experience Day along with four other GDST schools – Nottingham, Belvedere, Newcastle and Shrewsbury.

Pupils took part in a number of workshops; strength and conditioning, sports rehabilitation, goal setting and question and answer sessions with sports scholars. They finished off with a wheelchair basketball introductory session and game. One of the highlights was being able to use the Hydrotherapy pools – walking in a pool of 9 degrees then into one of 32 degrees. Ella D smashed the 10m sprint and strength test, power jump, gaining the best time and height.

A truly inspirational day, and we thank the team at Nottingham University for that fantastic opportunity.
