Ellie Rayer Visit
Former head girl Ellie Rayer came to the school this week to share her experiences of winning a bronze medal in the women’s hockey at the Commonwealth Games. She spoke in the Senior Girls assembly about how she loved being part of Team England at the Games and also met with Junior Girls to show them her medal and inspire them to follow their dreams.
“We went out to the Gold Coast for a medal and we weren’t going to come home empty handed, so when we won the bronze we were all relieved. I’m so grateful to Claires Court for being so supportive, from when I first picked up a stick at school to helping me reach where I am now. I’m now looking forward to a home World Cup in the summer!”
Margaret Heywood, Claires Court Head of Senior Girls, added:
“It’s fantastic that we had the opportunity so early on her return back from the Gold Coast to be able to personally congratulate Ellie on her amazing achievement. It’s also typical of this extraordinary modest young lady to make it her priority to pop in and see us. She has become such a superb role model for our students and we look forward to hearing of her next achievement.”
