We are very proud of Harry.

Inspired by our experience of taking part in the World School Sport Education Games in Greece in April 2016, Clare Mount has worked with a range of partners including the Youth Sport Trust, Special Olympics GB, NCSS/ISF, The Wenlock Olympian Society, William Brookes School, Stoke Mandeville, Wheelpower Sports and Basketball England to establish the 1st UK School Sport Education Games. Hosted over two days at Stoke Mandeville and Much Wenlock (Wenlock and Mandeville are the names given to the London 2012 Mascots) 40 young people with and without special educational needs took part in Unified Basketball, Unified Football, Adapted Athletics and participated in talks, tours and team-building activities based around the values of sport. The event was designed to showcase the rich Olympic, Paralympic and Special Olympic history of the UK, to bring young people together so they can go back and inspire their communities, and to act as a springboard to the World School Sport Education Games in future. Be Inspired! Visit our newsletter page to see photos of the event.
