Happy 'PE'ople Podcast

Happy 'PE'ople is a new feature for the Barnwell community, brought to us by Mr. Goodman.Β You can listen to stories and general conversation about sport, shared by members of staff at Barnwell.

Guests will share where their love of sport comes from, what motivates them to take part and any inspirational advice that can be shared with our listeners.

Hopefully somewhere along the way, you'll be able to laugh, smile and be inspired whilst leaving at the end feeling 'happy'.
