Kelly Morgan Smashes Out Another Inspiring Talk!

Mr Heathcote reports: During our Resilience week Kelly Morgan came in to speak to Year 9 students about her experiences.  Despite being born with tibial torsion and requiring calibres to straighten her bones she has had a very successful career so far, although with many challenges on the way.  She has represented Team Bath and England in Basketball having been told numerous times she wasn't good enough.

She was England's No1 and World No6 ranked Javelin thrower, winning a Commonwealth medal, despite numerous injuries.  She achieved her career goal of being a Army Physical training instructor, and most recently became the Silver WBC world Middleweight boxing champion, before once again receiving injuries that prevented her becoming the undisputed World Champion.  The students were hugely motivated by Kelly's story of challenge and resilience.

A huge thank you to Kelly again for giving up her time to come in and inspire our students.
