Published on isbi School News dated Tuesday 26th of April 2016

Former Unicorn School pupil Jamie Gordon will be cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats this summer, with his uncle and inspirational runner Ewan Forrest Gordon who recently ran 42 marathons back to back. Jamie is cycling over 1,000 miles to raise money for The Unicorn School, a specialist Dyslexia school which he himself previously attended. Now aged 16, Jamie is preparing for his GCSE’s and believes that his time at The Unicorn School gave him an essential foundation for his current studies. “I have decided to use this opportunity to raise funds for The Unicorn School” says Jamie, “as a mark of appreciation of all the good work the teachers and school have done for me and to increase awareness for dyslexia”. Jamie will undertake the gruelling journey over 14 days in July and August 2016, he will lead a team of cyclists who will traverse the length of the country, cycling between 80-100 miles each day. Enthusiasts can follow Jamie’s training and fundraising progress on his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Jamiegordonlejog and donations are gratefully received at https://campaign.justgiving.com/charity/unicorn-school/jamie-gordonlejog The Unicorn School celebrates its 25 year anniversary this year. In that time we have supported more than 500 pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. As we enter our second quarter-century our next exciting development is the introduction of our GCSE programme, commencing this September. This will make us unique as Oxfordshire’s only dyslexia-specialist school to offer GCSE education. We are proud of all of our pupils past and present and we are enormously grateful to Jamie and his quest to raise funds and awareness for our school. Jamie, you are an inspiration!
