Mike has taken over the running of the School gym for the last 3 years and in that time he has built an environment of professionalism, trust and enjoyment. It is very evident in the relationships that he has built with the pupils that they clearly enjoy and benefit from his management style and in building a strong working relationship he has managed to get the best out of every student and allowed them to fulfil their potential.
The majority of Mike’s work has been in preparing the School First XV for the School’s Cup campaign. However, his job has entailed much more than that. He has developed programmes for senior teams in Hockey, Football and Cricket.
He has also taken on the management and running of the S & C for the School’s Talented Athlete Programme and this has allowed Mike to develop programmes for a wide range of individual and team sports. These include Badminton, Tennis, Judo, Ju-Jitsu, Athletics, Cross country and Athletics. This has involved working with a number of governing bodies and developing programmes to supplement and enhance how these pupils already train at both provincial and national level.
