Studied: BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport

Now studying BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University.

Achieved: Triple Distinction Star (D* D* D*)

Three-time British Solo Ice Dance Champion Lily has been offered a scholarship on the Performance Athlete Support Programme to study Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University.

I came to Blackburn College originally to sit my GCSE Maths and English after being home schooled. I was really impressed by the sports facilities and enjoyed being able to learn a wide variety of topics within sport, not just focusing on one aspect or career path.
