Cameron Kirby


Cameron's love of skiing began in 2010 when his Mum took him for his first ski holiday, aged 7. Returning to Norwich with his natural talent, he discovered his passion for freestyle on the dry ski slope, where he began competing the same year. By age 9, he was already performing back-flips and at 10 he entered his first national competition where he won gold in the British Indoor Championships junior category.

More recently, Cameron has successfully made the transition into the 16 and under category, consistantly gaining podium positions at competitions over the last two years and culminating in a gold at the British Indoor Championships 16 and under category. Cameron has also now taken part in two international competitions and is hoping to build on this experience next season. His long term ambition is to compete on the international stage and one day the X Games and Olympics.

Emily Hicks


Emily, with her cheeky smile, has proven to be a tenacious hockey player. She has gone from a squad player to a starting player. She does not care if her opponent is bigger, stronger, or faster, she does her job, and does it frighteningly well. 

Emily, has been at Langley Prep at Taverham Hall since September 2015, and has excelled in all sporting spheres that the school offers. She is particularly strong in hockey and athletics, where she has represented School and Club at regional and national competitions, often above her age level.

Emily, trains and plays for the U12 Norwich City Hockey team, and they have recently qualified for the East Regional Finals. 

She is a determined athlete and has received recognition at both School and her Club.

Luke Shaw


I currently train around 10 times a week for my kayaking, most of this takes place at the Whitlingham boathouse in Trowse where my local club is based, and is a mix of gym, running and on water training. I am also part of the national training squad, both for sprint and marathon. So far this year I have not been doing any competitions however I am about to do a crew boat selection day in Nottingham for at the national centre.

A couple of weeks after that there is the first marathon assessment race in Elmbridge. After that competitions start more regularly in April with national races and assessment races before the international racing season starts in May/June time if I am selected. I will endeavor to keep you up to date as and when I have competitions and the results from them.
