2014 Leaver Aimee Pratt competes at the U23 European Championships in Sweden

We are enormously proud of former pupil Aimee Pratt who represented Great Britain in the 2019 European Athletics Championships in Gavle, Sweden this month. The 21 year old competed in the Women’s 300m steeplechase event winning her heat in 10:05.79 seconds.

In a dramatic final, the Silver medal was in her sight but with just 150m to go, she fell, fully submerging in the water. She recovered remarkably and managed to cross the line in 11th position. Great resilience Aimee!
