Bromsgrove School has a unique environment in which our students thrive. They are not only encouraged to succeed, but they want to succeed. This is what makes Bromsgrove School a fantastic place for your children to flourish not only academically but within the sporting world.
There is no lack of talent amongst its pupils, and it is proud of all they have and will achieve in their chosen fields. Bromsgrove extends a huge congratulations to those receiving international honours in their chosen sports; Isaac B for England Hockey, Issy E for England Netball, Olly D for Scotland Cricket, and Amber L-F for England Winter Sport.
When interviewing the students, it was amazing to see just how passionate they are about their sport. Passion and dedication is something that Bromsgrove strives to instil in all of our students, so it is wonderful to see this shine through its newly international standard athletes.
In their own words, the students described their experiences with securing international honours:
Isabelle Eaton – England Netball
‘I was selected for the England U19 Performance Competition Squad this July, after being part of the 2021 Roses Academy. We played three matches across 4 days, against the likes of Wales u21 and England u21. I really enjoyed the experience and it was amazing to put on the England dress for the first time, playing alongside very talented players from across the country. It was a great opportunity to show what we had learned from the Roses Academy Camps and put it into matches against some amazing opposition.’
Olly Davidson – Cricket Scotland
‘I have found the experience of playing cricket at an international level very exciting. It’s always tough playing a high level of sport, however I have enjoyed every second of it and can’t wait to push forward and play more. . It was fantastic working with Elliot Wilson and the other Worcestershire coaches. I also played in four trial games as part of Scotland’s warm up for the T20 world cup. It was great to play with International players, and learning what it takes to be successful at this level. Scotland has a great team which has helped me a lot in improving my skills which has been great.’
Amber Langford-Fennell – England Winter Sport
‘I have recently been selected for the Snow Sports England U16 Alpine squad to race as a nationally selected skier this season; as this is the youngest I can be selected, I don’t yet have any squad experiences to report back. However, this summer I have been competing in the national GBR slalom ski races throughout Great Britain – this is the top championship in the country on dry slope and indoor snow; last weekend I secured the U16 Dry Slope Champion, and am currently leading the indoor snow too, with one weekend of competition to go.
As an Alpine Squad member, this winter I expect to be competing in both Slalom and Giant Slalom ski races against Europe’s most experienced athletes representing their countries, this is in addition to my freestyle snowboard competitions throughout the Alps.’
Isaac Bridge – England Hockey
‘This year I was selected to play for the U16 England Hockey Squad. I played all four international games, playing Wales twice and Scotland twice, where I played in the fullback position throughout. I scored against Wales from a long corner, which was an amazing feeling. My best goal was against wScotland, where I managed to score off an interception and smashing it in from the top of the D.
It was a fantastic experience and I really enjoyed it, and it allowed me to take home four caps overall. I really enjoyed training and playing at such a high standard with a great group of people. The experience has taught me a lot, and I am looking forward to the next stages.’
