Gifted and Talented in Sport Visit to Bath University

Just before the Easter holidays, a selection of Year 10 and the AS Physical Education class visited the University of Bath for a Gifted and Talented in sports trip.

Throughout the day they participated in a range of sessions including two vigorous tests commonly used with professional athletes to assess their fitness levels, a field test which saw pupils battling for the top spots in a range of fitness activities and a speed for sport session on the indoor running track.

The visit concluded with a professional athlete Q&A session delivered by a female synchronised swimmer and a male water polo player who shared with the pupils their training regimes, importance and knowledge of diet and nutrition, their experiences to date and advice for our young athletes.
