Visit by Luke Prior

A high-achieving Great Britain athlete has been inspiring students at his old school.

Luke Prior, aged 20, who has been thrilling spectators with his excellent cross country performances told his story to students at The King Alfred School in Highbridge.

Since leaving the school two years ago, Luke has achieved his England International vest representing his country both at home and in Spain. In March this year Luke was selected to join Team GB at the World Cross Championships in Kampala where he finished 80th. 

He has also won gold medals in the England 5000m competition and is ranked 13th in the UK over 10000 metres.

The King Alfred School is one of Somerset’s fastest improving schools with a raft of positive news and will join The Priory Learning Trust on 1st October.

New Principal Nathan Jenkins said: “It was fantastic to meet Luke and hear his story of success. The way he has set himself challenging goals and then worked incredibly hard to achieve them, will I’m sure serve him well and undoubtedly inspire current students.  He has a big career ahead of him and we look forward to following his success with great pride”.

Earlier this year TKAS was praised by Ofsted after 8 months of being supported by TPLT, and has recently secured £1.2 million to help develop the schools facilities. TKAS is also on course for strong GCSE results this year, and the school has recently received an extensive makeover with new signage and site improvements.
