Bromsgrove School pupil Harvard bound

The upper sixth pupil will cross the pond to join the class of 2024

An upper sixth pupil at Bromsgrove School has secured a place at Harvard College for the 2024 intake.

Siena saw off tough competition for a place at Harvard University’s undergraduate college, with 40,000+ applicants each year for approximately 1,600 places.

Bromsgrove School is a co-educational independent boarding school in the Worcestershire town of Bromsgrove. Siena’s hockey coach at the school suggested she applied for Harvard and while she plans to major in biological sciences, she said she will keep up her hockey in her spare time.

I feel so lucky to have this opportunity. When you’ve worked so hard for something, you can’t quite believe it when you get it

In hockey, Siena has gained 19 England Caps for the U18 team, the last being the 6 Nations Tournament. The school said she is also an “accomplished alpine skier”, having represented Great Britain at U14, 16 and U21.

Siena said: “I feel so lucky to have this opportunity. When you’ve worked so hard for something, you can’t quite believe it when you get it.”
