Luke Davis

Since becoming a Young Ambassador at Holyrood HS in S4 and being part of the School Sports Council, Luke has taken every opportunity offered to him from starting with assisting the lead coach at the cricket cluster club to now delivering his own sessions.

Luke attended the Coaching Academy and is really positive about what he has gained from this experience.

Luke is delivering and supporting many clubs within the High School. Luke explored whether he could complete a work placement in place of one of his school subjects. This was to further develop his knowledge of PE teaching and as a result is now shadowing the PE teacher at St John’s PS.
