Tom Daley visits Plymouth College to open Strength and Conditioning Gym
26th January 2018

A special thank you to former student and OPM, Tom Daley, for visiting Plymouth College to open our newly refurbished Strength and Conditioning Gym.

A World Champion diver and awarded Diver of the Year 2017, Tom studied at Plymouth College between 2009 – 2013, combining his education alongside an intense training schedule.

Jonathan Standen, Headmaster of Plymouth College, said: “We were delighted to welcome Tom Daley back to Plymouth College and would like to thank him for opening our new gym and sharing his thoughts and experiences so articulately with our students. His presentation inspired many and his visit was thoroughly enjoyed by our students, staff and parents.”

Reflecting on his time whilst studying here, Tom spoke highly of the support that he received throughout and the opportunities that Plymouth College provided him. He then revisited areas of the school that meant a lot to him and fielded questions from our High Performance Athletes, Year 11, Sixth Form and parents, as part of a question and answer session.
