Congratulations to James Pearson, 5th Form, who has been selected to join the Under 17 GB National Taekwondo Squad. Building up to the Christmas break, James entered the first selection round. There were around 300 candidates that were then selected down to 160. The second and final selection round then took place after Christmas on the 3rd of January.

We are delighted to report, James was one of a few athletes selected to join the Under-17 GB National Taekwondo Squad. This is a fantastic achievement given how competitive selection for the squad is. Although obviously at present, Taekwondo like other sports are on hold, at least for face-to-face competitions, there is the potential in the future for James to represent his country at international competitions!
