On Monday 20th February Longfield Academy was pleased to welcome Angela Wilson of Angela’s Swim School to speak to Post 16 students about her journey to becoming a successful CEO. The students found it really inspiring to hear how Angela picked herself up and built a career in teaching swimming after failing to qualify for the 1992 Olympic Games. Angela gave the students some life lessons in determination and perseverance that will stand them in good stead not only for finishing off their A levels, but in their future careers.

Angela commented ‘My goal is to help people fulfil their dreams and enhance their skills in life.

Thank you to Angela for taking the time out of a busy schedule to come and speak to our students.
