England Hockey Trials

England Hockey Trials

Year 10 student Freya Tatham, has recently returned from King's College in Taunton, after trials for England Hockey. These trials were in the format of a tournament, in which she played other regional teams from Bristol, Southampton and Hazlemere.  Freya played in defence and midfield for the SW Region (representing Taunton).  England coaches were watching the games and noting players who performed well, for further selection to attend the High Performance Centre in Leeds this summer, for England Hockey training.

This sport is dominated at the higher level by Public Schools, which usually have multiple Astroturf pitches, so to see Freya hold her own against these schools shows a promising future. Freya was one of four players from Cornwall at the Taunton Performance Centre and the only one who does not attend a private school.

We are all very proud of her achievements here at Helston Community College and wish her the best of luck for her exciting future.
