An Audience with Louise Bloor

Students in Year 9 and 10 who are studying Sport or Food at STWA, Maltby Academy and Wath Academy will join us for An Audience with Louise Bloor, Olympic athlete and Senior Women’s Performance Nutritionist for The Football Association on Wednesday 20th March 2024.

Inspiring dreams and raising aspirations are an integral part of our vision here at Sir Thomas Wharton Academy, so this event fits with our vision of providing exceptional learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. 

The itinerary for the afternoon is as follows:

  • 1.10 – 2.00pm select students from Food/Sport will be invited to complete a session focusing on nutrition, health, and fitness planned by our staff. Louise will circulate and support, offering students advice during this time.
  • 2.00 - 2.30pm Louise will deliver a speech about her life, her goals and her career.
  • 2.30 - 2.50pm students have the opportunity to ask Louise questions and take photographs.

At some point, Louise will have been a student the same age as our young people, and she will have sat in a hall not too dissimilar to the one we will find ourselves in on Wednesday 20th March. I am looking forward to listening to how she achieved her ambitions and became truly successful both through her athletic career and going on to work in sports nutrition.

 We hope that somewhere in the hall on that day is a young person who begins to believe that they too could become a massively successful person just like Louise. Providing inspiration and aspiration is at the heart of what we do as an Academy, and this event embodies that vision completely.
