Former England captain Olivia Murphy held a netball masterclass at Oakham’s Catmose College last week.
Olivia, who holds 95 international caps and led the national side from 2000 until 2006, put pupils from year 7 to year 10 through their paces.
Olivia gave an inspirational talk to the pupils and showed them her Commonwealth medals before she led a coaching session and umpired matches between teams of pupils.
School principal Stuart Williams said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for Catmose College students to be coached by someone of such a high calibre.
“The workshop provided invaluable hands-on technique advice from a world champion, which will really help the students take their skills to the next level.”
