Year 7 ‘Achieve’
A group of twenty year 7 pupils have taken the opportunity to be part of the ‘Achieve’ programme which aims to support young people improve self-confidence, well-being and develop resilience. The programme is run jointly by North Yorkshire Sport, James Kirton (an ex-Olympic swimmer) and Richmond School. We aim to use sport and activity to develop aspiration and motivation and support the pupils to create a brighter future for themselves. The programme will develop essential life skills and build on local opportunities within the community.
The pupils attended a taster session where James Kirton led an inspirational workshop which thoroughly enthused all of the pupils so that they are ready to continue this journey when the programme will commence in January 2021.
