15th Dec 2017 – It’s not every day we learn that one of our pupils has been invited to join the squad for the England football team, so we were delighted to hear that this is exactly what has happened for Daniela in 10Y! She has done hugely well to achieve this recognition of her skills, and will now attend the England Women’s U16 training camp in January. She is determined to take full advantage of this opportunity, and hopes to convince the selectors that she deserves a place in the England line-up.
Daniela has been playing football since she was six. She was selected to play for Arsenal Ladies U11 team and remained with them until June this year when she completed a successful trial for Chelsea Ladies. She trains with them three times a week and plays matches every Saturday afternoon. She is absolutely thrilled with this latest opportunity, and her parents are understandably proud of her achievements. We wish her every success in January!
