Welcome to our new Sports Graduates!
Chantal is an Old Arnoldian, who went on to study Leisure and Sport Management at university in Leeds. She has always participated in a wide range of sports; however throughout her teen years, Chantal played hockey for Lancashire, North of England and was in the England Assessment Squad. Alongside that, Chantal also played National League Hockey both indoor and outdoor for over 10 years. She has experience in coaching up to county level and is excited to work with both new and familiar faces within her department.
Chantal has always thrived in coaching sports but in recent years, she has been working in the family business which has consumed most of her time.
She enjoys going to the Lake District with her husband and two children where they like to participate in a multitude of outdoor activities. Chantal is looking forward to joining the school and once again being part of the AKS community.
