A REDDITCH school has been chosen to lead a campaign empowering women.

Trinity High School has been selected to be the lead School to host Worcs Girls Can 2018, a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets.

Funded by The National Lottery and developed by Sport England, the aim is to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in.

In March Trinity will host a number of schools across Redditch, with the aim of encouraging more girls to take part in sport and activities.

It will be an opportunity for students to take part in a number of alternative sports and activities, such as glow in the dark fitness, kickboxing, and roller derby.

Adrian Ward Ward, headteacher, said: “We are very excited about this campaign which is about creating a positive experience of sport and exercise for girls.

"There were a number of applications for this and Trinity was judged to have really captured the purpose of the campaign and therefore chosen to be the lead school in Redditch. My thanks to our PE department for their passion and drive to secure this prestigious honour."
