Welcome to Life at Hoe Bridge School, the podcast where we speak to pupils, staff and parents to find out what it’s really like. Every week we’ll be talking to one of the members of the school community to hear real stories of life in the school.
And today we’re talking to Emily Appleton an alumni of the school and now a professional tennis player. In this episode you’re going to hear all about Emily’s professional tennis career and being a ‘Sky Sports Scholar’ since leaving Hoe Bridge, we’ll hear how the school helped to mould her into the athlete she is today, and we’ll hear about dealing with failure too. Tracey Clarke-Sullivan takes us into a conversation with Emily so come with us as we step inside now.
