Sophie has represented Team GB in fencing, in both Cadet and Junior National Championships. Her use of the Ludlow College gym facilities has allowed her to train alongside studying for her A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and French.
“Sports are a huge part of my enrichment at college and help me to balance my studying with activities I enjoy. I started fencing at a local club in my area and I am also part of the basketball team at college. The gym facilities at college made a great impact on where I decided to study, as I am able to train flexibly around lessons.
I find that taking part in sports alongside studying helps to reduce stress, especially during exam time. Training with the basketball team is fun and the College has a really welcoming atmosphere and a great community. I have made a lot of friends here and would definitely recommend the College to others.
Due to the small class sizes, I find that tutors really focus on the students and notice each person in the classroom. I am continuing on in education and achieved a sports scholarship at Bristol University, where I will be studying BSc Biochemistry.”
