In my entire teaching career Andy is the most caring, hardworking, compassionate, helpful and enthusiastic student I have ever had the pleasure to teach. For the past 3 years Andy has single handedly ran our disabled sports club which is a weekly event where he provides opportunities for those living with a variety of cognitive and physical dissabilities to take part in sport, he creates his own multi skills games to suit the needs of those who attend and they are hugely appreciatitive of his efforts and caring manner which is rare in someone so young. Andy has also volunteered his time at Lansbury Bridge special school running games, coaching and supporting classroom lessons and he is massively praised by staff there. Andy turns his hand to all sports including cricket, Athletics and football, within these teams Andy praises and encourages all competitors displaying neverending levels of sportsmanship. Andy helps coach school teams, he has been a sports leader helping run endless events across St Helens and he also referees football matches for local teams and charity events. Within his PE theory lessons Andy helps other students not by giving them the answers but actually supporting their learning and they are appreciatitive of his help. When you meet and see Andy in these roles it is unbelieveable to think he is still only 16 years old. Andy remains modest and I know it would mean the world to him, his family and those he supports if he were to carry the Olympic torch'
