Kate-Louise, aged 16, is a very committed sportsperson. She gets up at 4'oclock 6 mornings a week (and at 2:30 on the seventh!) to train as an international-level ice dancer. Through this, and with a lot of determination, she became the British Novice Level ice dance champion at age (just) 15 and she now competes as part of the GB ice dance squad and is a British Olympic Association 'passport' holder. But this nomination is about much more than sporting achievement. As Headteacher, I see her making a real difference by inspiring others and helping them to believe in themselves. Throughout the last two school years, she has inspired year 7 and 8 pupils who had difficulty with maths through leading 'mathlete' sessions that use sporting activity to reinforce mathematical concepts. She has also been actively involved in the International Inspiration Programme as a Sports Leader working with Brazilian sports leaders. Nearer home, as a sports leader, she has work with KS1 and KS2 pupils in local primary schools to achieve things beyond what they thought possible using activities based on a 'festival' theme.
