Marathon Success Again!

Patrick Barden a former student at The Math successfully completed the London Marathon earlier this year, raising thousands of pounds for ‘Step and Learn’ charity which has long supported his physical needs with his cerebral palsy.


Patrick went on to complete the Manchester Half Marathon last weekend & has since been nominated for the Meridian ITV Pride of Britain Awards (fundraiser of the year). He will be up against some tough competition and the winner will be announced later this week; if he is successful he will progress to the National Final which will be on ITV on the 31st October.


Once again it is overwhelmingly inspiring to see a former student do so very well at a physical challenge like this. Patrick has never let his physical disability stop him from doing exactly what he wants to; this was always apparent when he was at school with us and it is fantastic to see how well he continues to push boundaries to prove that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.


Please share Patrick’s story!
