World Champion inline skater Jenna Downing glided into Blessed Trinity and will act as a mentor for 12 Year 10 girls to help them prepare for next year's GCSEs.

Inline skater Jenna is a ten times British Champion and is working with the Youth Sport Trust as part of their ‘Get Exam Fit’ programme.
Get Exam Fit is a package of support which helps build the confidence of students, manage their physical and emotional wellbeing and achieve their potential in school examinations.

“It’s about confidence building, working as a team and challenging yourself," said Jenna. "It's getting the students to think about the outside influences which can affect them and how they can deal with it."

“Jenna is an inspiration," said PE teacher Mr Kelly. "She had won all her British Championships by the time she was 21 so she knows how to deal with pressure at the highest level.

"The students can learn a lot from Jenna."
