James Ketchell – Adventurer

We were thrilled to welcome the adventurer, television presenter and speaker, James Ketchell, to our school today. James is well known for completing adventures including rowing single-handed across the Atlantic, cycling around the world and climbing the tallest mountain in the world. He spoke to the Infants, Lower Juniors and Upper Juniors in three sessions during the morning and showed the children videos and photographs of his journeys. It was a hugely inspiring talk for both the children and adults. If you want to know more about James, please visit his website www.jamesketchell.net. I would like to thank Anthony Gibson and his company Tealium, for arranging and funding the visit today. We all look forward to following James’s next adventure – attempting to be the first person to fly solo around the world in a gyrocopter. His journey will begin on Saturday 1st December.
