Your profile I have recently taken on the role of Sports Academy Leader and I am looking to build on the amazing work and foundations laid by Mr Hillam.

Two characteristics that make anyone successful in life, not just sport are dedication and professionalism. Here at BBEC we have a vast array of sporting talent that I am looking to develop and nurture.

I have experience of coaching in a variety of sports, with success at amateur level. I was fortunate enough to obtain my coaching qualifications at a young age, which is something I am keen to offer our current Sports Academy pupils.
