On Track To Achieve
As part of the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust programme, yesterday athlete Claire Bennett came to speak to the school. Claire was a member of the Great Britain Women’s foil fencing team and part of the World Class Performance Programme. She has represented Great Britain in European and World Championships since the age of 14, and as captain of England Claire won individual Bronze and Team Gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Fencing Games. Claire loves getting the best out of people and supporting others to achieve their goals. As an Associate of Sport and Beyond, Claire now draws on the lessons she learnt from elite level sport to help progress, empower and develop others.
Through On Track To Achieve, Claire will continue to mentor a group of female students, working on a range of team building and empowering exercises that will develop and hone key skills that can be applied to all aspects of their lives.
