Roundwood Park School pupils met the sports personality at the school’s annual Sportsperson’s Dinner on Wednesday, December 6.

Head of PE Matt Hunter said “This was a lovely 
night of celebration, which I know our students greatly enjoyed and fully appreciated.

“Jamie generously gave up his evening to speak to our students. “The message he put across was one of hard work paying off, which was a brilliant one for them to receive.

“He spoke superbly, was very engaging and highly personable. A true gentleman.”

Pupils then got the 
chance to ask him questions, offering them an insight into the world of elite sport.
