TALENTED young sportswoman Rebecca Daniel secured the A Level results she needs to study Sports Science at Durham University.

Rebecca, who is from the Newmarket area, has been at King’s Ely since joining King’s Ely Junior in Year 5. She achieved an A* in Physical Education, an A in Psychology and a B in Geography.

Rebecca was a School Prefect last year and has hit both the local and national headlines on several occasions in recent years after being selected to play for the Under 16 and then the Under 18 England Hockey teams – and contributing to their victories.

As far as Rebecca’s sporting success is concerned, just some of her accolades include National Prep School Champion 800m (Years 7 and 8), Cambridgeshire Schools Cross Country Champion twice, Suffolk Cross Country Champion (three times qualifying her for the mini marathon), Anglian Cross Country Champion, English Schools Cross Country Championship (19th in a field of 350 and despite competing a year early!) and she plays National League Hockey for Cambridge City Hockey Club.

Rebecca has also been an active member of Ely Scheme; the outdoor education programme unique to King’s Ely, a member of King’s Voices (the Junior School Choir) in Years 7 and 8, and has played the French Horn, participating in music tours to France and Belgium with the school.

Congratulations Rebecca and best of luck for Durham!
