We are delighted to share the news that Lower Sixth Sports Scholar, Eleanor Russell has been selected for the England Athletics Youth Talent Pathway for 16-18 year olds. The Youth Talent Programme is the first key step on the England Athletics talent pathway, the purpose of which is to identify, develop, and support athletes and para-athletes from aged 16+ who have the potential to represent England and Great Britain at domestic and international competitions in the future. Last weekend, Eleanor attended an England Athletics YTP camp at Loughborough University where she was able to access outstanding facilities and work with international coaches including Bekah Walton, the current No1 UK Javelin thrower in the UK.

As well as excelling in athletics, Eleanor plays hockey for the KSR 1st XI this term and she will be on court with our netball team in the Lent term.
