A visit from Paul Sturgess

We have had an extraordinary visitor into Simpson’s Lane this week – Paul Sturgess. He is recognised as the tallest man in Britain and has played basketball for the New York Harlequins. Paul came in and talked about his career and some of the fortunate things he has been able to do since embracing his differences. He also talked about some themed topics such as; living a healthy lifestyle, anti bullying, embracing our own differences and discovering our talents. Paul also included the children in fun basketball tricks and ran basket ball sessions for each year group throughout the day.
