Redhill student becomes British Ice Skating Champion!

Last week, Redhill student Jack Donovan became the Advanced Novice Boys British Ice Skating Champion!

This was a huge achievement for Jack, who finished his competition 20 points ahead of his nearest competitor - wow!

This marks Jack's fifth win of 2023 and his third British Championship at the Advanced Novice level, having previously placed third in 2021 and second in 2022.

Mr Peters, Jack's Head of House said 'For several years now, Jack has been balancing, early morning skating training, performing on the international stage and keeping on top of his studies. He continues to reap the rewards both with his studies and on the ice, with his latest achievement being the Advanced Novice Boys British Champion. All at Redhill are exceptionally proud of Jack’s achievements.'.

Jack's father, Richard, told us 'This is a perfect end to his time in the Advanced Novice category, and although he could stay in this age bracket, he will now step up to compete in the Junior category. To prepare him for next season, Jack's next competition will be The Robin Hood Trophy, held in January. It will be an international event which will help to prepare him for the season ahead. Thanks once again for the support you have given as a school.'.

As a school, we are so proud of Jack's achievements, unwavering dedication and talent. We look forward to supporting and following his progress in the years to come!
