While he was at the school, Zeeks gave a presentation before leading a fitness circuit with the children.
Head teacher Chris Green, said athlete’s visit had been a hit with pupils.
He said: “Zeeks came in during the afternoon and led a fitness circuit for the children and spoke to the children during assembly.
“He spoke about his experiences in events and had two medals to show the children.
“Zeeks spoke about eating healthily and that with hard work you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
“It was a fun afternoon, the children were in awe of Zeeks.
“It was an inspiring afternoon and I hope we have raised our children’s expectations of what they can achieve if they aim high.”
