John Willis, Founder and CEO of Power2Inspire has kindly agreed to present the prizes.

‘Born without fully formed arms and legs, life has not stopped John. Following a law degree at Cambridge University John became a solicitor and practised as a litigator for 12 years. Subsequent moves included redeveloping the village of Papworth Everard, assisting a mental health social enterprise to leave the NHS, chairing the board of award-winning social enterprise Provide CIC and establishing a consultancy business. John was inspired through an able-bodied triathlon to promote sport for everyone and set up Power2inspire three years ago.’

Pupils are to register at 10.00am with their Form Tutor. As you know, Speech Day is regarded as a school day and all pupils are expected to attend, in full school uniform, unless parents have written to Mr Waltho, Senior School Head Master, seeking permission for their absence (seniorschoolheadmaster@kentcollege.co.uk)
