School celebrates another national sports champ amongst its pupils

A Staffordshire school is celebrating clocking up yet another national champion amongst its talented pupils.

Year 11 student Harry McAulay, from The Hart School in Rugeley, has secured what’s been described as a “phenomenal” and “amazing” sporting first.

Harry, of Rugeley, competed in the GKR (Go-Kan-Ryu) Karate UK National Tournament in the under 18s open black belt division and walked away as the National Champion in Kata.

Celebrating Harry’s win, while he was representing Region 25 Wolverhampton and the Central Zone, a spokesperson for his Rugeley dojo said: “This is a first for our area in GKR Karate and a phenomenal achievement.”

Harry is not the first sporting success among pupils at The Hart School, which is part of Creative Education Trust. They’ve also celebrated having students who are world champion kickboxers and national kumite champions, amongst others.
