A Day with an Olympian

The Sports & Public Services department were privileged to host double olympian Kate Haywood.

Kate came in for the day to work with some of our students as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport programme, in partnership with The Youth Sports Trust.

Kate is a double Olympian, European Gold and Silver Medallist, and Commonwealth Games Silver and Bronze medallist swimmer.

Kate spent the whole day working with the 16 students from all levels of study promoting the initiatives ‘6 keys to success’.
These included mental toughness, hunger to achieve, people skills, sports and life knowledge, breaking barriers and planning for success.

The students took part in a range of activities that really promoted these and ended with them presenting to the group how they are going to move forward and be successful.

All participants really enjoyed their day and were inspired by meeting someone who has excelled in their chosen field.
