It is smiles all round for two of Birchfield School’s girls.

Head Girl, Esther Hurford, plays cricket for two local clubs and also for the U13s Shropshire County Cricket team.  Prefect, Grace Seedhouse, also plays cricket locally and for the U13s Shropshire County; in addition she captains the U13s team at Birchfield School.   “Esther and Grace are the first girls from Birchfield School to win sports scholarships to Shrewsbury School, and this demonstrates their ability and commitment to sport in general.  We encourage all our pupils to participate in a wide variety of sports at school and it is wonderful news that their efforts have been recognised’, explained Mr Anderson, Director of Sport. 

The Headmistress of Birchfield School, Mrs Morris, commented that Shrewsbury School was clearly impressed with the girls’ sporting skills and their overall attitude on the day and added that “the school is immensely proud of them both on this outstanding achievement”.
