Visit of Charles Vernam

Posted on 8th February 2018

Caistor Grammar School welcomed back former student Charles Vernam, a professional footballer who currently is signed to Derby County FC and is on loan to Grimsby Town FC.

The students of Caistor were given a rare and exciting opportunity to ask Charles questions about his daily routines, mindset and diet to help them understand how an elite athlete functions.
The theory session allowed Charles time to explain the value of schooling, how he was in their position once and the sacrifices he had to make to pursue his dreams and future pathways.
Later on, the students were put through many fitness challenges and experience drills that professional athletes do day in and day out.

We are very appreciative of Charles giving up his time to come back and share his journey with students from Caistor Grammar School.
