Amie Richards

Amie attended three schools in the Multi-Academy:

  • Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 2001 - 2002
  • St Bede's Catholic Middle School, 2002 - 2006
  • St Augustine’s Catholic High School and Sixth Form, 2006 - 2011

Since leaving St Augustine’s I have gained academic and professional qualifications at university:  BSc in Sports Science, followed by an MSc in Physical Activity, Exercise & Health and a PhD in Sport & Exercise Science.  I also completed a PGCE in Higher Education and am currently working as a Research Assistant for the Welsh Institute of Physical Activity, Health & Sport at Swansea University.  Initially after graduating, I became a Health Mentor for Evolve - a social impact company who support the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged primary school children in Birmingham. 

Both St Bede's and St Augustine's provided me with a first class platform to continue my education.  The influence of the teachers to make learning both fun and engaging enabled me to find a love for learning.  Additionally, the extra-curricular opportunities that we could take part in, gave me confidence in a variety of settings and fundamentally provided me with a holistic approach to my personal development.
