Harry Peck, 12, from Blackheath, will be heading off to represent Great Britain in Challenge Wratislava in Poland later this month. He first started fencing at Eltham College and came third in the Preparatory Schools National Championships in his first year.

His coach and former international fencer Tim O'Conor said: "Harry is an outstanding young fencer and he thoroughly deserves this latest honour."

The youngster recently won the Under-12 Kent title in Canterbury, where Eltham College pupils scooped first place in each age group in which they competed.
