The World's Tallest Basketball Player Visits Clifton High

Paul Sturgess, the world’s tallest professional basketball player and Britain’s tallest man, visited the School last week; his visit inspired all the pupils he met.

Paul delivered amusing and exciting basketball sessions for the children in Years 5, 6 and 7, in which they marvelled at Paul’s skills and learnt some interesting tricks.  He also took a special trip over to our Nursery Pre-School children, who warmly welcomed him and were awestruck with his height.

Paul then stayed on for the Sports Celebration evening, where he gave an extremely motivational speech to our sporting stars and presented the various winners with their awards.  

Thank you to Paul for an exceptionally enjoyable visit for all pupils.
