Ben Cutmore leads the way at Roy Burrell Awards
Ben Cutmore took top honours at the annual Roy Burrell Awards.
The Bassingbourn Village College pupil was named sportsman of the year after continuing his diving development.
Cutmore has gained scores of national and international titles and is part of Great Britain’s World Class Programme.
Bassingbourn schoolmates Max Bowen (athletics), Max Crane (football), Louis Chadwick (football), Fleur Corlett (dance), Ed Vickers (trampolining) and Sam Daniels (cycling) were awarded medals for competing at a high level in their chosen sports.
“We are so proud of them all,” said Helen Guilder, joint head of PE at Bassingbourn. “This is another amazing achievement for Ben.
“He is a superb student. Despite his diving commitments, he keeps on top of his work load and school work and is an extremely level-headed and conscientious student.
“Ben’s achievements in diving are amazing and I believe he is the biggest talent we have had at Bassingbourn.
“I am sure that with his commitment and focus, we will see him competing at the Olympics in the not too distant future.”
Cambourne Village College’s Izzy King won the sports leader of the year award for her contributions to school football and PE, as well as her generous work in the community with football.
