Professional athlete - Aidan Syers

Today, we have been fortunate to have Aidan Syers come into school. 

Aidan Syers is an experienced Team England & Team GB 100m sprinter, who has recorded some of the fastest times in UK history. As a youth, he was recognized as Britain’s fastest school-boy, he has since become a junior champion and international medalist. He regularly receives outstanding feedback for his inspirational qualities and is highly involved in mentorship for developing young athletes.

We started the day with an assembly where he answered questions about his journey and his inspiration. There were some fantastic questions asked and he talked all about his commitment and determination as an athlete. 

After his assembly he worked with year 4 and 5 to encourage and inspire. He was able to share all of the highs and lows of what it is like to be an athlete.
