“We are so proud of you Achele”
All at HRUFC
Achele played for our Girls Rugby Team before progressing to the Ladies Section. She is a well respected team member and stalwart support for the Club and an inspiration to our younger girls. Achele has coached our juniors at Summer Camp for the last 2 Summers and is a favourite amongst the children.
She is currently a Head Student in Year 13 at Harrogate Grammar School, on the England Rugby Pathway, and is passionate about making the most of every opportunity she is given.
She is fortunate enough to have been accepted into Harvard College Class of 2023.
Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Achele was initially drawn to Harvard due to their reputation of world-class teaching and facilities, and excellent provision for students.
After her success at GCSE’s gaining 10 A*’s, Achele is currently working towards top grades in her Maths, Physical Education, Chemistry and Biology A Levels, which has made her a competitive applicant. She was invited to Massachusetts to visit and interview at Harvard in September 2018, where she realised she had found a university that offered everything she wanted, both academically, athletically and culturally. Harvard offers a ‘deeply transformative liberal arts and science education’, with a focus on ‘individual achievement and meaningful collaboration’.
