Two Year 10 students from Avon Valley School recently met double Olympic gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes, at a celebration event following their participation in the AQA Unlocking Potential programme.

The programme, which is run jointly by exam board AQA and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, aims to raise the students’ aspirations on future life goals, whether at school or college, university or training and employment.

Charlotte Oliver and Paulina Jaworska were nominated by their teachers for the eight month programme, during which they were mentored by Paralympic skier Anna Turney.
