royal visit to Gordon's
Proud moment for our students and staff yesterday as The Earl of Wessex visited the school to officially open the new sports hub and unveil a plaque commemorating the occasion. The Earl toured the new Fitness Suite, Rowing Centre and watched football and rugby on the sports pitches. His Royal Highness also spent time over a coffee with the school’s student Wellbeing Prefects and mental health first aiders and learned how pastoral staff care for boarding students, particularly those whose families are in the Armed Forces.
As well as chatting to players and teaching staff, His Royal Highness enjoyed the opportunity to take on some of the students in a game of table tennis!
Sports Director Jamie Harrison spoke to That's TV about the visit:
