Gold medal visit

On Thursday 2nd March 2017, we were delighted to welcome gold medal winning Olympic cyclist, Joanna Rowsell Shand, to Chorlton High School. 

Joanna's visit was organised by Sustrans to promote the Big Pedal, an inter-school cycling competition, which we will be taking part in later this month. As one of the ten schools and colleges taking part in Transport for Greater Manchester’s Cycle Schools and Colleges Project 2016-2017, we were chosen to host this exciting event! 

A lucky group of Year 7 students got the opportunity to go on a cycle ride with Joanna along the Fallowfield Loop and, most importantly, a chance to see those impressive Olympic gold medals! The students involved had a fantastic afternoon and we hope this has enthused and inspired them to get cycling!
