Charlotte Hartley who now works for Sky’s “Living for Sport” and is visiting us three times this year to help our students grow in confidence through their love of sport.
Charlotte started playing hockey at high school after being encouraged by her PE teacher. Her talent for the sport was obvious; she quickly progressed to representing the North of England and then competing on the England U16 team.
Charlotte was bullied at primary school for being good at sport, the stress of which resulted in her developing alopecia (hair loss) causing more bullying. Despite this setback Charlotte believes that the experience made her even more determined to become the best athlete she could be.
