Freya is the current British Javelin Champion and plans to compete in this year’s European and World Championships, as well as the Commonwealth Games.

Director of Sport Mark Burley said "Freya is a great role model and someone our pupils will be able to learn a huge amount from. She brings a lot of energy, as well as expertise, to training sessions."
