Another half term, another great sporting opportunity for students at RPA. This term Sheen Lawn Tennis and Squash club have very kindly let a group of Year 7 and 8 students have the chance to play squash and develop their racket skills. Some students have never had this experience before and it has been a real pleasure to watch the progress and develop their understanding of different types of sport. 

The club has offered brand new equipment as well as free coaching sessions with the students which has been great in seeing them appreciate the complexity of the sport. All the students have taken to the challenge with enthusiasm and great resilience and I hope they continue to try new sports in the future when given the opportunity.
