Racing to School is a free educational programme for pupils and students of all ages delivered at racecourses throughout the UK.
We travelled to Pontefract to experience racing, behind the scenes. The activities were delivered by a team of Education Officers, including former teachers, jockeys and members of the racing fraternity.
We participated in a range of numeracy challenges around the racecourse, including calculating weights in the weighing room and measuring the perimeter of the parade ring. We even got to see famous jockey, Frankie Detorri ride.
