Sport has always played a big part in Georgina’s life. In recent years she has devoted herself to rowing, single sculling to be precise. As an outstanding junior athlete she has won all major domestic honours. She is currently a double British Champion (2017 and 2018), and was a Henley Women’s Regatta winner in 2018.
In late 2017, in recognition of Georgina’s achievements, Yale University’s recruitment coach reached out to her with a view to her matriculating to Yale in 2019, Georgina being invited on an official visit to the American university in April 2018. The formal offer received from Yale that followed her visit was conditional on meeting stringent academic entry requirements and achieving excellent A Level grades; she duly delivered these in August 2018 at Holy Cross College: AAB in Maths, Geography and Further Maths.
Georgina starts at Yale in 2019 and we wish her all the best with this unique and wonderful opportunity, many congratulations Georgina.

Professor Brian Cox recently delivered a lecture at Manchester University: ‘Exploring the Universe: From the beginning to the end of time’, hosting 40 students from Holy Cross College, several of whom are pictured here with Brian Cox. It proved to be a very thought provoking afternoon, one that both engaged and challenged the students’ existing ideas, a very rewarding experience for all our pupils.
A massive Thank You to all Holy Cross staff and students who raised a total of £231.93 for 'Save the Children' on Christmas Jumper 2018.
