Skate and Bike Challenge

One of our pupils has recently taken part in a skate and bike challenge to help raise money for a family in need. So far he has raised nearly £300! He has been to a lot of different skate parks and is going to continue to do so. Keep it up!

Here is a short clip of him in action.
