Come Back And Inspire Talk with Tom Jessamine
Class of 2010, Tom Jessamine started our new programme of alumni talks ‘Come Back and Inspire’. Tom grew up with a passion for sport, his most memorable studies at Colyton Grammar School where obviously his favourite subject, PE. He also enjoyed Biology where he told students that he enjoyed the subject, but he had to work extra hard to achieve good grades for the course he wanted to study at University. On reflection this was a life lesson - that you should always try your hardest to achieve the best result.
Tom went onto complete a degree in Sport Science and Exercise at the University of Birmingham and is now a professional Golfer, working towards his PGA status and coaching qualifications. Tom’s little piece of advice would be to always ask questions, this is key in school, university and through out life.
Tom also reminisced with some of his teachers at Colyton Grammar, Mr Smith, Mr Bush, Mr Bedford, and Mrs Harvey.
We look forward to hearing where Tom’s PGA career takes him and we wish him all the best. Alumni are inspirational for our current students, we are grateful to Tom for making the time to ‘Come Back and Inspire’.
