Pennthorpe were delighted to welcome Team GB and England hockey player Izzy Petter on Wednesday. Izzy has won an Olympic Bronze medal and Commonwealth Gold medal, both of which she bought into school to show the pupils. Izzy spoke with the Pre-Prep and Years 5-8 about her journey to the top, training regimes, how to cope with set backs and how it felt to play at the Olympics Games in Japan 2021. The children were also treated to a masterclass with Izzy on the Astro, where they learnt about 3D skills, beating a defender and ‘V’ drags.
