Olympic rower Sir Matthew Pinsent wowed pupils during a visit to Bury Grammar School Girls.
The school was chosen to feature in the Olympic Journey, a BBC show which looks back on the legacy of the 2012 Olympic Games held in London.
Headteacher Bobby Georghiou said the four-time Olympic gold medallist was complimentary about the sporting achievements of students at the school.
She said: “It was a great honour to have a national sporting hero commend BGSG for our attitude towards women in sport.”
The programme was part of a Get Inspired campaign focusing on women’s sport, and filmed students taking part in a swimming activity.
