Olympic Bobsledder, Greg Cackett, joins Upper sixth for sports awards dinner

The Sports Awards 2021 evening was held this term to celebrate the Upper Sixth and their contribution to school Sport throughout their seven years at GHS.

It was an Olympic-themed evening full of colour, which complimented our guest speaker Greg Cackett. Greg is currently preparing for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics as a member of the GB Bobsleigh team. He delivered an inspirational speech about his sporting journey, and we heard about the life lessons he learnt along the way.

The evening was a lovely platform to commemorate a truly super seven years of Sport at GHS, with a photo presentation of the students representing GHS from Year 7 through to Sixth Form. Using the ‘GHS 8’ values, several special awards were created and awarded to the students to thank them for all their hard work and commitment.

The Upper Sixth have been an absolute delight to coach throughout the years, displaying true grit and determination across a full range of sports. We look forward to hearing about their sporting successes in the future.
