|Course:||Sport and Exercise Sciences (Extended Diploma)|
I came to The Henley College from Prospect School. I've really enjoyed the Sports and Exercise Sciences course, I've learnt how to work as part of a team and have gained more knowledge on training and how the body works. Whilst studying the Extended Diploma I also joined the Elite Sports Programme, AASE, and the Wasps Rugby Club. I get to train and play in matches whilst also studying which I'm really pleased with and being part of a supportive team has really boosted my confidence when playing.
I have gained a lot of experience studying here and my aim is to get a contract with the Wasps Rugby Academy, or look into a rugby scholarship in America.
