In October 2019, Aston Fields Middle School received a visit from Sophie Cook, an International pole vaulter. Sophie is currently the British athletics Pole Vault silver medallist with a personal best of 4.40m. She has competed for Great Britain at the European Team Championships in 2019 and the Athletics World Cup 2018 at the London Olympic Stadium.
Sophie led pupils through a series of activities related to her training and answered pupils’ questions about her life as an athlete.
We are pleased to advise you that this sponsored event raised a total of £1,265 which is split between our school (to purchase sports equipment) and the Inspired through Sport organisation (to help budding athletes achieve their athletic goals).
Thank you very much for your support.
