Team GB Hockey star Crista Cullen
On 6th December Crista Cullen, Team GB double Hockey Olympic medallist, visited Kent College to celebrate the opening of our new Astro Pitch.
Crista led a session on the Astro Pitch for the school’s senior players before meeting parents, Governors, alumni and staff during an afternoon reception, where she spoke about her journey to the London and Rio Olympics.
The Astro Pitch is the latest addition to an already impressive portfolio of sporting facilities at KC. In addition to the secondary Sports Hall, which opened in October 2015, and state of the art Fitness Suite, which was built in 2014, the new Astro Pitch positions the school as the destination for girls who want to excel in Hockey. Current Year 11 pupil, Georgia Whitaker, has been recently selected for the England Hockey U16 Training Squad and Kent College’s XI team have started the season with an impressive match record.
Headmistress, Ms Julie Lodrick
I am delighted that Crista Cullen visited us to open our new pitch and that our girls have had the opportunity to train with one of the country’s leading sportswomen. At Kent College, we provide our girls with personalised training and development to help them become the best sportswomen they can be.
Director of Sport, Miss Sam Clark
The new pitch and the recent appointment of Mr Ben Allberry as Head of Hockey is a very clear indication that signals our intent to become a leading hockey school. We now have the facility to allow all our girls to experience hockey as it should be played and I am confident that we will see more girls following in the footsteps of Georgia Whitaker and her England achievements.
