Year 13 student Jude Perceival is showing his passion for boxing with his recent successes at the sport in the welter weight class. Jude has already had successes playing for the Sunderland football youth squad but having recently fallen out of love with football he has gained a new love for boxing, so much so that he has even reached a National Final!
Jude is hoping to turn professional but will continue with his education to a university/degree level apprenticeship. He feels that his academic performance is enhanced by the skills and qualities he learns through his boxing including discipline, respect other people, team work and a sense of trust.
We wish Jude all the best of luck at both his A-levels and his sport as he certainly works and trains hard for both!
