Perri Shakes-Drayton inspires our athletes

In preparation for the DRET Summer Cup, we were delighted to welcome hurdler and sprinter Perri Shakes- Drayton to the academy.


Our hurdlers and sprinters from the Summer Cup squad took part in a masterclass session, focusing on their sprint starts and confidence in going over the hurdles at pace.


Miss Manson, Sports Enrichment Officer, commented: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to receive first hand advice and knowledge from someone who has been to European Championships and Commonwealth Games.


“She was a phenomenal role model for our athletes as she gave an insight into her career and experiences at some of the biggest competitions in the world.”
