St Clements held their fifth annual PE sports presentation on Thursday with Olympic bronze and silver medallist Bryan Steel as special guest.

The evening celebrated the individual and team successes over the last year with a number of awards being presented by Steel.

Jess Alder, Annabel Brown, Sam Baxter and Ryan Walpole won Contribution to School Sport awards.

Amber Stannard and Charlie Dye picked up Sports Leaders awards, while Harrie Surrage and Callum Hendry-Walpole were most improved.

The quintet of Ross Brown, Robson Pack, Owen Stannard, Amy Thorpe and Natalie Warnes won top GCSE practical awards.

Sportswoman of the Year was won by Ella Payne, with Sam Thorpe, Paul Defty and Harry Knight collecting the sportsmen’s accolade.

Fifteen Year 7 students received certificates of achievement for their contribution to school sport, with a further 19 obtaining half colours.

Steel delivered a very interesting and poignant speech.

He had the audience transfixed as he described his time at school and his pathway through to becoming an Olympic silver medallist.

He remained behind after the presentations, chatting with students, parents, and guests and allowed them to hold his Olympic medals.

The evening was a great success and made special by the guest speaker. The school now looks forward to the new academic year.
