Pupils from Rastrick High School have visited Wembley Stadium and appeared on Sky Sports programme Game Changers

Sport students from Rastrick High School became stars of the small screen and visited the home of football as part of an amazing trip to London.

A group of 20 students took part in the Sky Sports programme Game Changers, hosted by ex-Great Britain athlete and 4x100m gold medallist Darren Campbell and Di Dougherty, a talented amateur golfer.

Pupils have been participating in the Sky Sports Living for Sport project at school and were asked to appear on the show because of the fantastic work they have done and the strides they have made in improving their English skills through sport.

As a result of their work, Sky Sports paid for the group to travel to London by train, stopping overnight at the Radisson Blu Hotel, before appearing on their TV show.

To make the occasion more special, teacher Dean Watson, who has run the group this year, organised a tour of Wembley stadium.

“The boys were superbly behaved throughout, representing Rastrick High School at the very high standard that we expect,” said Mr Watson. “The trip was very enjoyable and an unforgettable experience for the group of students, which was a just reward for the fantastic work and commitment shown by the students to the Sky Sports project so far this year. Hopefully, this will have given the group the motivation and the inspiration to continue with their hard work in the project for the remainder of the year.”

On the Saturday morning, the boys were kitted out in Sky Sports T-shirts, ready to make their way into the studios.

They then spent the next hour cheering, shouting and dancing their way through the live show. Some of the group were even lucky enough to be given prizes for their involvement, from loudest cheering to best dancing. After the show they were able to spend time with the presenters and get their autographs.
