Millfield Upper Sixth pupil Rachel has made history as the first female swimmer from the school to be selected to compete for Team GB at the FINA World Junior Championships in Budapest.
We caught up with her at the pool before she left, and asked her how Millfield supports her with her academic work and her swimming, and what advice she has for young swimmers hoping to follow in her footsteps.
Millfield School is one of the UKâ€™s leading independent boarding and day schools for boys and girls, aged 13-18, providing a fully rounded education to pupils from over 70 nationalities.
The school is contemporary and outward looking, applying a visionary and innovative lens to all domains of learning. This is supported by notable facilities in teaching, art, drama, music and sport.
