We are extremely proud of Theo and all he has accomplished during his time at school! The only way is up for him now, as he attempts to break into the Wales squad and compete in international competition. We’ll look on with extreme interest.
Is your child doing something out of the ordinary out of school time? Please do get in touch through the usual channels – we’d love to hear from you. It’s an absolute pleasure to watch our boys push themselves outside of the classroom and achieve fantastic results.
