Meet A Pupil
Jemma - Year 10

Her optional GCSE subjects are PE, Geography and Spanish.
Interviewed January 2017
“The sports I do are tennis, netball and hockey and the sporting opportunities were one of the main reasons for choosing this school. I’m currently captain of the netball teams and would love to become a Sports Captain in Year 11.
Because of my busy tennis schedule I’m grateful to the teachers for helping me catch up on work I’ve missed for tournaments. It’s really easy to get help if you are struggling mainly because the small class sizes allow teachers to focus on you.
In the future I want to join an American university for tennis and travel for different tournaments.”
