Alumna Brogan goes from Greenhead to Team GB

We’re thrilled to reveal that Greenhead College alumna, Brogan Crowley, has been selected to represent Team GB in the women’s skeleton event at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

Brogan attended Greenhead College from 2010-12 and studied A Levels in English Language, Law and Physical Education, and an AS Level in Psychology.
Whilst at Greenhead, Brogan competed in the Heptathlon and won the English Schools 100m Hurdles. Brogan’s motto is ‘Don’t Give Up!’, which is amazing advice and has certainly served her well throughout her sporting career.
We send Brogan all our best wishes for success in Beijing!

A ‘national double’ for Greenhead Netball!

We are extremely proud of our netball team who have now achieved a ‘national double’ as they reach the national finals in two separate championships.

Having previously qualified for the AoC National Championships taking place in April 2022, on Sunday 30 January, the team stormed ahead at the regional round of the National Schools Championships in Sheffield winning each and every game and qualifying them for yet another national final. The National Schools Finals will be held at Oundle School, Peterborough on Sunday 13th March. 

A huge congratulations to the team whose attitude throughout has been exemplary and a real credit to the College. Good luck at both finals, we will be cheering you on all the way!
