Olympic Champion Martin Cross and fellow Gold Fever coaching colleague Tony Rice were back at Stantonbury Campus, the UK’s largest secondary school, completing the last two days of a 4 day programme with students.
Working with Yr 11 and yr 10 students across all of the 4 school “Halls”, Martin and Tony delivered their bespoke programmes to groups of 25-30 students to help improve their A – C GCSE grades. The coaching worked on areas such as lifeline & vision, personal qualities & role models, developing positive beliefs and reinforcing positive feedback & motivation.
Martin said afterwards, “It was great to be back working with the students here at Stantonbury again. They were a really lively bunch and it was so rewarding listening to how they felt coming out of the sessions. Words like “inspired”, “confident” and “happy” are fantastic things to hear from young people.”
Trudy Haycock, Head of Dansteed Hall added, “It was a great day and our students got a lot out of the session in speaking to them afterwards. For me, just seeing some of our quieter students actively contributing to the discussions and the team exercises made the day worthwhile”
Judging by all the autographed photos Martin was asked for by the students…..and some of the teachers too!….an inspirational day was had by all.
So impressed were they, that they have invited Martin back next week to the schools award day to hand out the prizes at their annual sports award ceremony. Way to go Martin! Keep spreading the Fever.”
