Rebecca is a dedicated athlete and trains daily in swimming, shooting, running, fencing and horse riding disciplines. In 2009, on the 21st June, Rebecca was participating in a Junior regional tetrathlon when she was injured by her horse - she broke her pelvis in five places, ruptured her bladder and had a collapsed lung. Rebecca's injuries were so severe that she was hospitalised for almost 3 months and had to have a fixator pinned into her pelvis for around four months. Rebecca was so determined to return to school that she came back against the doctors advice and still wearing the fixator. On her return Rebecca participated fully in all lessons - even Physical Education. Whilst she was running the 400 metre laps other students could only look and walk the course. Rebecca is a fighter - at times the dressings from the fixator, and the infections that were bone deep, needed changing on a weekly basis and the nurse came to school to attend to her. Rebecca is a determined young lady and has fought her way back to full strength - now regularly competing in pentathlons and being selected for the British Pool Talent Squad. Within school, Rebecca has just been appointed a school prefect and is predicted to achieve over twelve A* - C grades at GCSE next year. We are extremely proud of Rebecca and the example she gives to other young athletes in the school and local area - she would make an excellent ambassador for the olympic torch relay.
