All Grown Up

This page is all about our former pupils and what they have achieved since leaving Seaburn Dene Primary School. If you are a former pupil and would like to send your story, along with a photograph, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Beth Mitchell

Beth is now 19 years old. Even at primary school she adored dance and often gave exhibitions at school events. Now Beth has embarked on Professional Dance Training (Level 6 Diploma) at the Performers College in Essex. She was one of the performers at the opening ceremony in this year's FA Cup at Wembley. She still has another 2 years at college before becoming a professional dancer.

Ben always won sprint races in the school's annual Sports Day and now he trains for several hours a day to progress up the rankings in the Decathlon. He is currently 13th in the country for the Under 20 participants. Ben is currently studying for an Extended Diploma in Sports Science at Gateshead Academy before finding a university place to study Sports Therapy. And despite all that studying he will continue to power through as a decathlete.

Outside of work I am a dedicated International Acrobatic Gymnast. In 2011 I became Senior European Champion, followed by Senior World Champion in 2012. In the summer of 2012, myself and my team mates, entered a Televised TV Show on ITV called ‘Lets Get Gold’, to which at our surprise we won. Since then,I have appeared shows such as Sky One’s ‘A League of Their Own’ and toured the UK with the dance group Diversity as part of their ‘Limitless The Reboot’ Tour.
