Samantha is a pleasure to have in school. She is a diligent, organised and intelligent pupil who has a likeable character and has a good circle of friends. This is due to the fact she lives the Olympic and Paralympics values on a daily basis both in and out of school. She has respect from her peers and from members of staff and is always polite and keen to have a conversation. In school she is part of the house team 'determination'. She has represented her team in a number of house competitions and been captain in a number of disciplines. Samantha is a keen footballer and is about to have trials for the Martin Gray football academy. She has represented the school in football and netball and over the forthcoming year she will represent the school in swimming, volleyball, cricket and athletics.
