Students at King Edward VI School perfected their leadership skills with the help of Olympian Tom Daley’s diving partner Pete Waterfield.

The five ‘Young Ambassadors’ also worked with Olympic and Commonwealth badminton player Anthony Clark during their visit to SportsDock, in East London, near the Olympic Park, to improve their ability to lead and coach others.

James Sturgeon, leadership, coaching and volunteering co-ordinator at the school, said: “It was a new and positive experience for our students.

“To learn how to adapt their leadership skills to different communities by mixing with other young people from across the whole of London and from as far away as Liverpool really opened their eyes.”

The Young Ambassadors scheme is a Youth Sport Trust programme supporting the development of leadership and volunteering which forms part of the Olympic 2012 legacy.
