Former Unicorn Plays 11 hour Tennisathon to Raise Funds for School

Former Unicorn School pupil Luke Strivens is playing an 11 hour tennis match to raise funds for The Unicorn School. 

Luke is limbering up for the “tennisathon” with the aim of beating the record tennis match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut in Wimbledon 2010, which lasted 11 hours and 5 minutes over three days.  Luke will play his tennisathon on Sunday 4th September, playing all day from 7am to 6.06pm
in a mixture of singles, doubles, rallying, drills and fun tennis. 
Enthusiasts can follow Luke’s training and fundraising progress on his Just Giving page and donations are gratefully received at

The Unicorn School celebrates its 25 year anniversary this year.  In that time we have supported more than 500 pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.  As we enter our second quarter-century our next exciting development is the introduction of our GCSE programme, commencing this September.  This will make us unique as Oxfordshire’s only dyslexia-specialist school to offer GCSE education.

We are proud of all of our pupils past and present and we are enormously grateful to Luke and his quest to raise funds and awareness for our school. 

Luke, you are an inspiration!
