Year 11 Student gains scholarship with Sunderland Ladies FC

Huge congratulations to one of our Year 11 students, Leanna Giles who has recently gained a Scholarship with Sunderland Ladies FC.

This is a fantastic achievement, and Leanna will move over there in September.

Leanna has travelled to Sunderland 3 or 4 times a week for the past 5 years showing huge commitment, which has now paid off.

Sunderland Women’s Scholars said:

“Leanna is an incredible footballer with a huge amount of potential, and has a brilliant personality!”

“The PE staff and wider school community are delighted for Leanna.  She has worked so hard for this opportunity and she thoroughly deserves it.  She is an excellent athlete, superbly talented footballer and a truly hardworking and dedicated young lady. It has been a pleasure to watch Leanna’s development and she has always been 100% committed to her St Benedict’s School Teams.”

“We wish Leanna every success and will continue to support her at Sunderland.”
