George Goddard (16) has been offered a place at the Glasgow School of Sport from June 2012. His chosen disciplines are the 100m and 200m, and he will be working for a year with a team of specialist athletics coaches. Progress will be monitored continuously through fitness testing, the completion of training diaries and competition results.
Glasgow School of Sport is Scotland's first school dedicated to sporting excellence and has been developed at Bellahouston Academy where George will also be studying academic subjects during the working week. Specialist provision is intended to ensure that such pupils are given the best opportunity to develop their sporting talents as part of their School Education. Great care is taken to provide pupils with every opportunity to maximise not only their sporting but also their academic potential.
