Student Profile


As well as studying Level 3 Sport & Exercise Science and A Level French, Ethan was also on the Elite Rugby Programme.

“I was attracted to The Henley College as it gave me the opportunity to combine my education with the Elite Rugby Programme. My course covered all key units, which gave me a good insight prior to considering the syllabus available at various universities. It also prepared me well for university and helped me develop my independent research skills.”

Ethan came to us from The International School of Luxembourg and plans to study Sport & Exercise Science at The University of Bath.
