Julia Atkinson- Tait, Head of PE at QE says:
“Everyone at College is absolutely thrilled for Fran and Angie. During their time at QE they were exemplary students and superb, dedicated athletes who combined their academic studies with their rigorous training regimes. They played water polo whilst studying A levels and also represented the College at swimming championships. I’ll now be watching the Olympics with added interest and wish them every success. Well done, Fran and Angie!”
Before studying at QE, Fran was a pupil at Bedale School and Angie was a pupil at Woodham.
