Alex Gregory - Gold Medallist

We were absolutely delighted to welcome Alex Gregory to the Richard Pate School. Alex was gold medal winner in the coxless fours at the London 2012 Olympics, and is a former pupil of RPS. He visited the pupils in the Prep department, the Juniors and the Nursery, and the older children had the opportunity to hold his medal. He gave a fantastically inspirational assembly and answered a huge variety of questions afterwards, his favourite of which was "Are your muscles like half a grapefruit?"

Also visiting the school were two Games Makers, Sarah and Stephanie Payne. Sarah was volunteering at Eton Dorney when Alex won his gold medal, and actually helped him out of the boat. Stephanie, her daughter, is a former pupil of Richard Pate.
