Sports Scholarship – Wellington College

Many Congratulations to former Elstree pupil Louis H, who has been awarded a Sports Scholarship at Wellington.  Even though he is still in his first year at Wellington, Louis plays polo for the Senior U19 Wellington team, and over the course of the  year has been fully involved in Wellington U16A football, U15A hockey as well as training in tennis, swimming, squash and racquets.  Wellington now award their Sports Scholarships to pupils after they have completed Year 9, and we are absolutely delighted that Louis’s talent has been recognised in this way.   In his final term at Elstree, Louis was awarded the prestigious Huntsman Cup for his major contribution to Elstree Sport.   It was lovely to hear from Louis’s family as follows:

‘Whilst at Elstree Louis experienced countless memorable moments and was given some incredible sporting opportunities in the numerous sports he played – tennis especially.  We’re eternally grateful Louis had the great fortune to have some very, very special prep school coaches and mentors (and some very talented team mates). Louis’s coaches provided unwavering support, invaluable advice, encouragement and genuine interest in Louis’s sporting development throughout his time at Elstree as you and Sid have. Thank you.  We are all enormously grateful to you both and to these very special sports coaches and mentors.’
