Olympic medallist inspires students

Paignton Academy welcomed Olympic Medallist, Cassie Patten, who spent the day inspiring and challenging students through her amazing story and interactive activities. The Academy’s Gifted & Talented sports performers, Year 9 prefects and a BTEC Sport group all had the opportunity to meet Cassie, take part in the activities and ask her questions. Mr Julyan organised the visit, which had a significant impact on all of the students. Megan from Year 9 said, “It was very insightful and inspiring, showing us how, if you work hard, you will get rewarded and good things will come from it. It sends the message that we should work for what we want.”
