Potterton awarded
Published 04/02/13



HENLEY COLLEGE student Andrew Potterton has been selected for the government-backed Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS).

Potterton, a flatwater sprint kayaker, is the U18 K4 British national champion (1,000m) and a double silver medallist in the K2 category. Last year he competed at the junior and U23 European championships.

TASS aims to help athletes shine in education and sport by providing the support they need to excel in both aspects. Sportsmen and women received a tailored package of services worth up to £3,500 a year, which can incorporate sports coaching, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning training, lifestyle and education support and access to the TASS medical programme.

Around 550 British athletes receive a TASS award each year and the scheme is backed by the government through the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and UK Sport.

College principal Tom Espley said: “I would like to congratulate Andrew on this achievement and I’m sure we will see his success continue into 2013 and beyond.


“The College is very proud of the large and growing number of students who represent their country at national and international level, across a very wide range of sports.”
