Superstar sports volunteer scoops top GCSE grades to add to accolades

Sheffield Girls’ pupil Hannah Blyth celebrated last week after achieving some fabulous results at GCSE whilst managing her time over the last two years between her studies, various volunteering projects and competing in a number of sporting and academic challenges.

Hannah achieved two grade 9s, seven grade 8s and a grade 7 in her GCSEs, with top results for English Language and History.

After receiving her results, Hannah said: “I’m so happy to have achieved these results and can’t wait to start sixth form in a couple of weeks time and continue with my sporting coaching, umpiring and playing.”

Passionate about contributing to sport in her community, Hannah was last year awarded the Yorkshire Netball Equality and Diversity Role Model Award, winning above all other entries from adults across the region.

Hannah has also been coaching junior and senior players with special educational needs at Concord Netball Club over the last few years, and working with Net4all, alongside additional volunteering during lockdown when she developed regular online sessions and exercises for people to access from home.

In March this year Hannah also received a community Youth Award after completing 100 hours of netball volunteering and she is well on her way to gaining her C Award in umpiring.

Reflecting on Hannah’s collaborative approach and her commitment to supporting the wider community, Liz Rodgers, Assistant Head Co-Curricular at Sheffield Girls’ said, “Hannah is an outstanding role model; her enthusiasm and expertise motivate both younger students and her peers alike. Hannah also shows a tremendous capacity to marry together both her studies and her wider interests within a balanced lifestyle and this has such a positive impact on her local community.”
