Ark Evelyn Grace Academy student Shakiem Whyte has taken the sprinting world by storm. After winning the 100m for the whole of ARK last July, Shakiem has won a scholarship to start training at Crystal Palace with John Powell MBE, a renowned athletics coach.

Mr Wingate, Head of PE said "We saw Shakiems talent at the ARK Sports Day and we couldn’t believe his potential. As he had never trained properly before we decided to send him to Crystal Palace where specialist training has meant that Shekiem has improved further and is now one of the top sprinters in his age category nationally"

Well done Shakiem, we are extremly proud of you!
