ISA’s National Ambassador for Sport, Gwilym Price, has been awarded an MBE in this year’s New Years Honours.
The award has been given in recognition of Gwilym’s work in leading ISA’s national sports programme, which has benefitted thousands of ISA pupils across the UK.
A teacher since 1969, Gwilym held the post of Director of Sport at Princethorpe College in Rugby for over 30 years. He has been involved with the ISA sports programme since 1988, during which time he has organised hundreds of sporting events for schools – both in the UK and abroad. As ISA’s Sporting Ambassador Gwil now leads the ISA National Sports Programme –the UK’s largest programme of sporting events for independent schools.
Speaking earlier this week Gwilym said that he was “ thrilled and honoured” to receive the award, and expressed his thanks to ISA colleagues and pupils who had made it possible.
Gwilym will be presented with his MBE at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace later this year.
