Tom Receives MBE At Windsor Castle

On 8 March, OE Tom Dyson (1996-03) was awarded his MBE for his services to Paralympic rowing by Princess Anne at Windsor Castle.

Tom tells us "Receiving my MBE from the Princess Royal at Windsor Castle was a huge honour. Her Royal Highness's dedication to sport and her support of coaching made this extremely special. The international nature of my job has often meant that my family can't be there for the big moments, so to have such a special day with all of them, including my young niece, made it particularly memorable."

A keen rower here at School, Tom went to the University of Cambridge where he continued the sport alongside studying for his MA in Natural Sciences. Tom is now Head of Olympic and Paralympic Performance Delivery for British Rowing following 14 years coaching with the Paralympic Programme . Under his guidance there have been huge successes for ParalympicsGB; topping the medal table consecutively at the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 games with an impressive five gold medals. Tom cites the 2015 World Rowing Championships as one of his proudest achievements, coaching four Paralympic boats, all finishing in the top two positions in the competition.

A huge well done to Tom from all of us here at RGS Worcester!
