LJS Alumni Success – Charlie Mellor

After leaving LJS having received a fantastic set of results in his final GCSE’s (including a 9 in GCSE PE) in August 2021, Charlie Mellor was selected to attend Gosforth Academy, Newcastle as a member of their ‘Ace Programme’ for Rugby.

Long days and dedication are key for Charlie, he gets dropped off at the bus station at 6.30am on a morning and after training at Kingston Park on a Monday and Thursday he gets home at 9pm. He has rugby training every day and Wednesdays are match days.

Taking into consideration the squad size and the fact there are players a year older, Charlie has done exceptionally well and has been selected in all 4 league games to date. The team remain unbeaten and if they maintain their form they’ll finish top of their league which will give them an easier run against the southern league which includes teams from Exeter, Bath and Gloucester.

They beat Bishop Burton yesterday 34-14 and Charlie scored a try - so he’s was rightly so on cloud nine.


College is also going well and at the moment and Charlie is also managing to balance everything, including a job at M&S.

We are so proud of you Charlie and this is proof that if you work hard, show amazing commitment, apply yourself fully to all you do, excellent opportunities will come your way.

Keep Smashing it!!
