Former England footballer John Barnes visits Blackburn Central High School.
John Barnes visited our school to raise the aspirations of our Year 11 students in preparation for their GCSE examinations.
He provided the students with a thought provoking and inspirational speech that left them in awe and motivated for their final big challenge.
John Barnes also led a coaching session for our lower year groups, drilling students in the art of fitness and mobility just like the old Liverpool greats.
Headteacher Mrs Atkinson said it was “A fabulous event in which all pupils were engaged and motivated leaving not only the students but the staff a positive and lasting message.”
Student Zuleka said it was “An exciting and once in a life time opportunity.”
