Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech has been awarded lottery funding to help students keep fit and stay healthy.

The £7,770 Big Lottery Fund Awards for All grant will be used to deliver lunchtime and after-school sports and exercise sessions.

These sessions are being targeted towards students who are reluctant to take part in curriculum-based PE classes, particularly special educational needs pupils and those for whom English is not their first language.

The aim is to improve their health and wellbeing by raising their physical output and increasing their engagement with other students, raising their confidence and self-esteem.
