Masterclass at St Margaret’s
29th June 2021
Last week we welcomed Kevin Barrett, former scrum-half for Saracens, into School to deliver a masterclass to our sports scholars and GCSE PE pupils.
Currently Head of Academy Strength and Conditioning at Saracens RFC, Kevin has also previously played for Exeter Chiefs and London Irish.
Delivering three sessions across the day, the first was practically based including the importance of warm up and cool downs, movement, balance and stability for performance, agility and speed drills and the role of core and truck stability.
This was followed by a seminar on a typical week of a professional sportsperson, behaviour and discipline, nutrition and recovery, and a Q&A session.
The final practical lesson was based around games that brought to life some of the themes of the day.
Whilst it was a physically demanding day, the opportunity to train with a sports professional was not lost on the pupils that took part.
“It pushed me to my limit - such a fun, inspirational day!”
Head of Physical Education at St Margaret’s, Mrs Pimlott confirmed the day to be an all-round success “We can’t thank Kevin enough for taking time out of his busy schedule to deliver such a motivational day, the pupils have got so much out of it, it has been fantastic to watch!”
