Ravenscliffe High is the first school in Halifax to join the Sky Sports Living For Sport initiative.

Now in its ninth year, the free scheme is run with the Youth Sport Trust and uses sports stars to improve the lives of secondary school pupils in the UK.

Ravenscliffe will be now visited by one of former Olympic gold medallist Darren Campbell’s team of athlete mentors.

World inline skating champion Jenna Downing and former bobsleigh world champion Nicola Minichiello will represent the project in Yorkshire.

During their visits, the mentors will share their stories with students and discuss challenges they have faced in their own lives.
