Denstone College Prep School in Uttoxeter had an extremely special guest visit last week – Olympic Champion Adam Peaty MBE.

Peaty is currently the World Record Holder in 50m and 100m breaststroke and he made history at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games becoming the first member of Team GB to take gold in Brazil but also the first male Olympic Champion in the pool since 1988, as he won the Men’s 100m Breaststroke title.

He bought several medals including his Olympic Gold medal and some of the children were lucky enough to try it for size!

He was happy to answer a plethora of questions from both pupils and staff.

Headmaster Jerry Gear said: "It was a real pleasure to meet him and I for one could easily have listened to him for hours.

"He pitched the answers to all of the questions at just the right level for the children and it really was inspiring to listen to him."
