An DCHS Student has been selected to join the GB Climbing Development Squad.

It is the fourth year running that Duchess’s Community High School student, Fred Williams, has been invited to join the team. Fred has been climbing since he was 5 years old.

Instructors were quick to recognise his talent and encouraged him to compete in national competitions and, in 2019, he was selected for the GB climbing squad.

Since then he has gone from strength to strength and, despite the challenges of the last two years, he has found ways to train at home and continued to enjoy success.

We are really proud of you Fred and wish you the best of luck for the coming sporting year!
