Principal Nicky Cooper said "we are delighted to announce four of our learners will take part in the Tall Ships Race this summer. All four learners have demonstrated commitment and resilience and thoroughly deserve a place. They will benefit enormously from this wonderful opportunity. It is something that they will remember for the rest of their lives."
All four learners are tremendously excited about the event, and Yonela said "I am exhilarated to have this opportunity and take part in the Tall Ships Race; all of us are delighted to have this once in a lifetime chance!"
