Hayley Simpson, is one of 14 Leeds Beckett first year students to be selected for the University’s annual Bright Futures Scholarships.

Hayley, aged 19, and a former pupil of Hyde Clarendon Sixth Form College, said she was delighted to receive the scholarship and that she would use the funding to further develop her coaching skills. She commented: “Through the Bright Futures funding I will be able to take part in more sports coaching courses to develop my knowledge and skill set further. In the future I hope to be a physical education teacher and sports coach and it is crucial if I am to be successful in this field that I have an in-depth knowledge and plenty of experience with a wide range of sports.”
