If you visit St Edmund’s there is only one place you need to look to find Lucy Henderson: the astro. Lucy is an outstanding sportswoman with a great talent for hockey. Her work ethic and desire to improve her game marks her out as a very special athlete.
She always asks questions and works tirelessly to improve her skills. Currently she captains the U15 hockey team and plays a key role within the team which has earned her a call up to the 1st XI where she has held her own and shown her talent.
Being a sports scholar, she is part of the Elite Athlete Development Programme. She works just as hard off the field as she does on the field or in the gym with our strength and conditioning coaches to work on making herself a better athlete.
Lucy also plays for Canterbury Hockey Club in the Girls U16 side as well as for Canterbury Ladies 3s. Last season she won the U16s most improved player through her tireless efforts and has become a mainstay in the starting line-up.
Through the Junior Development Centre this year, she has been selected for the Kent Junior Academy; from here she is looking forward to moving on to the Junior Regional Academy and hopefully receive her first Junior International call up.
Off the sports field, Lucy enjoys her academic life at school; her favourite subjects are English and History. She also finds time to be heavily involved in other extra-curricular activities especially drama and CCF, and enjoys participating in all of these as she is determined to make the most of all the opportunities that St Edmund’s offers.
