Shrewsbury’s young leaders

Sixth form students from Shrewsbury High School were put through their paces by leaders from all walks of life at an Apprentice-style event. Olympic hockey gold medal winner and former team captain Kate Richardson-Walsh was among those on hand to inspire students taking part in the annual young leaders’ conference, which aims to give students experience of real-life situations and prepare them for future challenges.

Kate spoke with students and offered top tips on leading successful teams. British Army officers then led a series of team-building exercises before students were split into groups and given 36 hours to create a digital fundraising and awareness campaign for a charity.
