Whilst this might only be the first year of our Golfing Academy Programme with Cookridge Hall Golf Club. The students taking part already have some success stories to shout about.

Our participating students recently took part in their first big schools’ competition. The team qualified for the finals of the Yorkshire Schools’ Championships and Niall won the boys competition, qualifying for the North of England Schools Championships.

Over the Easter holidays some students were involved in an international game against Dortmund, which they won overall.

Zara 300x300, Horsforth School and Sixth FormZara is Going to America
A special mention has to go to Zara in Year 13 who recently came second in the Scottish Open (an international competition). She was leading in round one and two and came second overall, which was amazing! Plus, as a result of her hard work and skill she has been offered a full scholarship at California State University Fullerton after she leaves our sixth form . This is an exceptional achievement for this young talented golfer to gain a place at a top American university and we will hopefully see her playing professionally in the future.

Her successful scholarship place was given a helping hand when we invited Gemma Webster from PEAK USA in to talk to our golf students about opportunities in America. Gemma has first-hand experience as an ex-professional, who also went through the USA scholarship programme and was a vital support in helping Zara. We look forward to working together with PEAK USA in the future.

Giving Something Back

The students from Horsforth School really enjoyed it and the sixth form student leaders were fantastic, sharing their knowledge and expert coaching!
