Pupils at a Seaton Delaval school played host to a star of the England women’s rugby union team.
Katy Storie visited the Year 9 girl’s rugby league squad at Astley High School to help inspire and motivate the pupils to achieve their goals.
With her experiences on the rugby field, Katy helped to highlight what can be achieved through hard work and determination.
The rugby star was handpicked by the Youth Sport Trust to become a mentor because of her unique personal journey.
She has overcome a range of challenges to achieve sporting success and she shared her experiences with the group and used her story of triumph over adversity to support teachers at Astley in motivating the pupils to be the best they can be.
