Ella, who studied A-Level PE, Biology and Maths, was handed two awards at our sports presentation - female sports personality of the year and women’s football academy players’ player.
After winning the awards, Ella said: “I was very surprised and didn’t expect to win either award but I am proud to have won both of them and it’s an achievement I will always remember.”
The football superstar chose Seevic because of the friendly and positive atmosphere around the whole college as well as the variety of A-Levels on offer.
Talking about her time at Seevic, Ella added: “I have enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends who I will stay in contact with even after leaving college. I have also enjoyed the sport at the college - especially on match days!
“Seevic has been different to school because college enables you to have more independence which helps you to prepare you for university or employment; I feel that you mature a lot quicker whilst at college. Staff treat you with respect and more like an adult which you do not get when at school.
“In all my subjects I have always found that there were tutors around to help and support you if there were any problems. Everyone is approachable and willing to help; such as offering one to one sessions to help with specific topics as well as revision before, during and after college which I felt benefited me in my exams!
“The college really helped me to prepare for university by hosting careers fairs which helped me to decide what course I should take and at what university. They also helped me with my personal statement and gave me ideas for work placements.
“The sports programme is very good and well organised, we had our training sessions incorporated into our timetables and had fixtures every Wednesday. The style of training has benefited me in many ways and I feel I have improved and progressed massively over the 2 years within both my skill level and game/position understanding.
“Being part of a team has enabled me to make lots of new friends, and grow in confidence which I believe has and will benefit both on and off the pitch in the future.
Ella is looking to continue her studies at the University of Brighton where she hopes to become a fully qualified Physiotherapist.
To anyone thinking of studying at Seevic here is what Ella had to say: “I would definitely recommend Seevic to students, especially if you enjoy sport, it is one of the only places where you can study the subjects you want to do as well as participate in competitive sport.”
