George Dickson a student in Year 8 at St Aidan’s came in the top 10 in the country in the BBC Five Live ‘Young Commentator of the Year Competition’ for students aged 11-15.

He was asked to select from 5 different video clips and then commentate on that particular clip for 90 seconds. George selected Andy Murray’s win at Wimbledon given his enthusiasm for tennis. This is a fantastic achievement and as a result he was interviewed by Radio York and then had the privilege of commenting on the England v Slovakia match in the Royal Hall last Monday at the Harrogate Hospitality and Tourism Awards Evening.
