Inspiring the Next Generation

We were delighted to receive a visit from a group of King’s Worcester pupils last week, who spent the afternoon inspiring our Year 5 pupils with a series of coaching sessions.

The King’s Senior pupils, who are all former pupils of King’s Hawford, told Year 5 all about sport at “Big King’s” and what they’ve achieved since leaving Hawford, before running some very informative cricket and athletics sessions, with plenty of top tips for our aspiring athletes to weave into their practice going forward.

We were delighted to welcome back the following pupils:

  • Will M – Will won the silver medal at the National Finals for Javelin when he was a King’s Hawford pupil. He is now an accomplished athlete and regularly represents the school for athletics. He is also part of the Worcester Warriors player development programme.
  • Alex T – Alex plays in the First XI Cricket team and First XV Rugby team. Alex is also a member of the Worcester Warriors Academy.
  • Alex W – Alex left the senior school last year and is currently supporting the sports departments as part of a Gap Year placement. During her time at King’s, Alex played netball for the first team and represented the school for athletics.
  • Louisa D-V – An accomplished athlete at King’s Worcester and part of the first XI Hockey Team.
  • Lucy W – Plays Cricket for school and recently reached the last 16 in the country in the girls U15s hardball tournament. She also represents the school at Hockey, Netball and Athletics.

Jonny Mason, Foundation Sports Director said: “It’s been wonderful to see these pupils returning to King’s Hawford to inspire the next generation. So much of what they’ve achieved has only been possible because of the sporting opportunities and teaching they received during their time at Hawford, so they were delighted to come back and share their expertise.

The younger children were so receptive to the senior school pupils, who delivered the sessions with enthusiasm and confidence.  We’re looking forward to running more of these events so we can really show our youngest pupils what sport at King’s Senior is all about.”
