Olympic Visitors

Published 10 October 2023

At our recent Open Evening, our Year 10 Living for Sport group had a great opportunity to work alongside athlete Mentors Toby Garbett and Susie Dear.

Toby has longstanding links to our school and as a previous Olympic rower and Tri athlete, he is always an inspirational figure for our students. This year, Toby introduced us to Susie Dear who is a current GB rower and is presently working towards a place in the Paris 2024 Olympics. Fingers crossed she is successful in gaining a place.

Both Toby and Susie worked on team building activities, including rowing machines, with our Living for Sport group and gave them an insight into working towards challenges. They also encouraged many of the visiting Year 6 students to try out the rowing machines.

A huge thank you to Toby and Susie for giving up their time and providing an excellent opportunity for both our students and our visitors.
