Inspiring talk given to Gloucester students
SIXTH formers from Sir Thomas Rich's School were invited to Dean Close School in Cheltenham to listen to a speech by former hurdling star Colin Jackson.
The 46-year-old Welshman, who was the 110 metre hurdles world record-holder, world champion and Olympic silver medallist, visited the school to chat about his illustrious career.
The speed merchant, now a successful BBC broadcaster, was the first speaker to visit as part of a new fund set up by a former pupil in honour of retired teacher Iris Long.
Pupils from other schools, including All Saints' Academy and Balcarras, also attended.

Chris Carter, deputy head teacher at Sir Thomas Rich's School, said: "Our boys were very inspired by the talk and came back to school very motivated.
"The talk also inspired them to take full advantage of the opportunities our schools offer.
"It made many of the students think about their future. We want to thank the Dean school for inviting us."
