On Friday 4th November, Broughton Manor welcomed GB Paralympic Footballer Alistair Patrick-Heselton to the school. Alistair has played in the Paralympic World Championships and the Paralympic World Cup, as well as scoring against Argentina in the 2012 London Paralympics. It was a great privilege to have him at our school.

Alistair led a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed this up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of this event was to inspire the children to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage us all to discover and then pursue our passion in life. Hearing about the hardships he faced and his perseverance and dedication in the face of adversity was very inspiring.
