PUPILS from Henry Beaufort School in Winchester played host to Paralympic wheelchair rugby star Aaron Phipps, who visited the school.

The pupils involved in the Sky Sports Living for Sport project shared the activities they have completed, the skills they have learnt and their accomplishments on and off the playing field with Aaron Phipps when he visited their school – while pupils from Weeke Primary School, Winchester, also visited to hear him talk.

During the visit, Aaron shared his experiences with the group and used his story of triumph over adversity to support teachers at Henry Beaufort School to motivate the pupils to be the best they can be.

Aaron said: “I came away from Henry Beaufort School feeling incredibly inspired by the commitment of the young people I met. Hearing how the pupils are putting their new skills and lessons they have learned into practice is a fantastic example of how sport has the power to change lives. It was also great to see pupils from Weeke Primary School coming to visit. It was a special day.”
