Martin Tye Visit to Year 3

We are delighted to be working with our friends at Balfour Beatty and Heathrow again this year to offer the Jason Robinson Sports Stars programme to our Year 3 children. To launch the programme, we welcomed a very special visitor to our school who delivered an inspirational assembly and shared his challenges and achievements with the children. Martin Tye is a former Lance Corporal in the Royal Logistical Corps who has overcome the serious, life-changing injuries he suffered whilst serving in Afghanistan and is now a World-Record-holding strongman and sportsman who competed in the Invictus Games in 2017 and 2018 where he won 11 medals in various events. His speech really inspired the children to get active and try new sports and they learnt about the importance of resilience and determination.
