Theo Spalding Mackintosh for Latest Sky Sports

Theo Spalding Mackintosh for Latest Sky Sports

The Boswells School have run and completed the latest instalment of the Sky Sports Living for Sport project this September as they welcomed Theo Spalding Mackintosh, 6-time British Judo champion, to school. The latest project that the school has run, in its fourth year and consisting of 8 previous projects, has given over 200 students access to high quality sessions with professional sportsmen and women such as Jeanette Kwakye (100m Olympian), JJ Jegede (British and European Long Jump champion), Rachel Laybourne (Volleyball Olympian), Mike Mullen (Two-time BMX World Champion) and Jonny Wilkinson (Rugby World Cup winner).


This time round the students were selected from Year 7, and those chosen were given the latest opportunity based on either excellent extra-curricular club attendance, having an excellent attitude towards PE lessons or because they are helpful and friendly around the department.


As always the session begins with Theo’s story and Sky’s 6 Keys to Success, followed by numerous fun team-building games where the boys and girls pitted their abilities against each other to see who could emerge as the winners.


PE teacher Callum Ridgway said, ‘We are fortunate that we always access such good, professional mentors from the Sky Sports Living for Sport project and again we were lucky with Theo. He put on an excellent session for the students, which challenged them to work as a team to achieve their goals in the day’s activities whilst still thinking about what they needed to do individually to reach the higher levels of their respective sports.’


Theo will be back at school in December to complete the second part of the annual project.
