There are also Year 11 students who have been selected to represent Shropshire. Ellie Halstead and Annabel Rogan have represented the School in Hockey teams at every level as they have progressed through the School and recently they both participated in Hockey trials to be selected for the Shropshire U17 team.

Helen Davenport, Head of PE and Girls Games, commented, This is a great achievement for all the girls concerned and especially Ellie and Annie who have both played Hockey very enthusiastically all through their school career at Ellesmere. We wish all the girls  every success as they play for Shropshire Hockey.
