The elite para triathlete and double world champion spent the morning at Sacred Heart Primary where she gave an inspirational talk about the trials and tribulations she went through to win her Olympic medals.
Headteacher Mr John Robertshaw said: " The children and staff were completely in awe of Lauren and and all she has achieved.
"It was fantastic for our pupils to get to spend this time with her, ask her questions and hold her Olympic medals. "
Lauren, who was a semi-finalist on the hit TV reality show Come Dancing in 2018, said it was one of the best school visits she had ever had, saying: "The children asked some great questions and I could see they were really engaged.
"I hope I was able to show them they can follow their dreams and you can overcome challenges in life, despite any difficulties."
