GB Paralympic Footballer Jack Rutter


 

We were very excited to welcome GB Paralympic Footballer Jack Rutter to the school on Tuesday, 13 June. Jack was a premier league footballer when an incident left him with brain damage that severely affected his balance and hearing. He is now the captain of the England Cerebral Palsy Football Team.

Jack led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.  The children all had a fantastic time and were all inspired by Jack’s story.
