Anthony Joshua is working with Kings Langley School to help keep pupils motivated and healthy during lockdown.

Mr Fisher, Headteacher at Kings Langley School, wanted to do something special to help his students to stay motivated and to keep active while learning from home, which led to the professional boxer working with the school.

The school are delivering a fully-live knowledge rich curriculum to their students following a normal school timetable, which includes High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with the PE department.

The school hope these additional resources will ensure more physical activity takes place within the home using every day household items along with the Kings Langley School bag.

The school are looking forward to receiving photos and videos from students and parents trying out these workouts so they can share them with Anthony Joshua and his team.

Mr Fisher said: “We are delighted to have Anthony Joshua working with us at Kings Langley School to support the students to stay healthy and motivated whist also engaging and progressing with a fully live knowledge rich curriculum on our virtual platform.

"As a school we are delighted that these videos will both promote our own PE department’s live HIIT sessions but will also enable students to use everyday items in their house to stay fit and well during this lockdown, such as the Kings Langley School bag!

"It was great to see AJ filling the Kings Langley School bag with his boxing gloves and tins from home to teach the students what they can do to stay fit and healthy.

"Our thanks go out to him and his team for giving up their time to help inspire our students.

"I am sure following this recent visit and engagement we can work closer with AJ and his team when the school reopens in the future to continue to inspire pupils to stay active and healthy."
