On Friday 11th January, former student Ellis Evans returned to Culcheth High School to provide students with a motivating talk on his educational journey so far.
Ellis, who now attends Carmel College, studying Sport and Business, wanted to impress upon current Year 11 students about the importance of GCSEs and his strategies for dealing with their
current stressful situation. A heartfelt talk was had, where an honest Ellis explained the mistakes he made but also how he managed to turn his life around in Year 11. This change in attitude has allowed him to go on to succeed, even visiting New York to play for his college basketball team and being scouted by American universities.
The talk was warmly received by all students, who could see the honesty in what Ellis was imparting. Hopefully, he has managed to inspire the students, in the same way he managed to inspire the
members of staff in the room.
