JP is a vastly experienced PE Teacher and has played a number of sports to a high level, including cricket for England Universities in 2003 and rugby for Chobham 1st XV. A former National level performer himself, JP has extensive coaching experience in Rugby Union, Rugby League and Cricket at both club and school level. JP believes that educating and coaching are closely linked and that learning, in a fun environment, is essential to every athlete achieving their potential. He is the father to 3 young children aged between 7 and 12 and has set up the junior section partly due to the lack of quality coaching available to young people of this age as well as a general lack of provision for athletics in the UK.
