LYTCHETT WINS NATIONAL MATHS COMPETITION
Congratulations to Stefan Webster of Year 13 who recently won a national Maths competition run by The Institute of Mathematics and its Application in conjunction with Transversal Technology. The focus of the competition was to get students excited about studying maths and to highlight its importance in the real world. The competition challenged students aged 16 to 18 to solve a series of maths problems based on sailing. As one of the six winners, Stefan will have a day training on the water with Olympic sailor Sarah Ayton and the next day put his new skills to the test as he and the other winners take part in the annual Transversal Charity Cup. This sees teams compete in a yacht race from Cowes, Isle of Wight to Port Hamble, Southampton to win money for their chosen charity. Well done to Stefan and we hope he has a fantastic couple of days.
LYTCHETT ELITE ATHLETE PROGRAMME
This year saw the launch of the Lytchett Elite Athlete Programme, the Physical Education Department's commitment to its most able and talented sports performers. Among the students we have national standard performers in a range of sports as well as many representing their county.
The programme began with a presentation to parents about the realities of parenting a child whose sporting commitments can occupy a huge share of their free time. This was followed by a similar presentation to the selected athletes. The programme has been introduced in order to inspire, challenge and educate those with the potential to secure a career in the world of sport and sport science. During the course of the year the students have been fortunate to spend two afternoons involved in question and answer sessions. The first was with Simon Briscoe, Lead Performance Analyst for Team GB Sailing whereby the students got to see and hold some real Olympic medals. Shortly after this the students met Ben Williams and Bath RFC who introduced them to the life of a professional rugby player. Students also benefitted from three visits. The first was to Twickenham, home of England Rugby, the day before the famous victory against the all blacks. The second was to the Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal football club and the third was to Bath University for some physiological field tests.
The programme has been a real inspiration for all, and all students school wide are invited to complete a profile form if the believe that they may be at the required standard for next year's course.
