Ellen, Sport Science

I’ve really enjoyed the technical learning at the UTC.

Former Great Britain skater Ellen Key is looking forward to carving out a new career in sport after completing her studies at UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

The 18-year-old has achieved A Level psychology at grade D as well as a distinction in a technical qualification in sports science.

Now Ellen, who used to compete at a national level in figure skating, is going on to study sports science at Sheffield Hallam University. Her ambition is to become a sports psychologist.

She said: “I’m looking forward to starting my new course at university. I’ve really enjoyed the technical learning at the UTC.”

Dr Sarah Clark, Principal, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, said: “Ellen has not only achieved a great university destination, she’s also made valuable contributions to extracurricular sports at the UTC.”
