7 questions with…...Lucy Horne

We talk to BTEC Administrator Lucy Horne about her next big challenge and a good cup of tea!







You’ve literally just completed your first ever triathlon (half ironman). What’s your next big challenge?
I have entered the ballot for the London Marathon so fingers crossed but I am thinking about the Bournemouth Marathon which is in October. I think I will give my legs a rest this week though!

Perfect summer evening?
This would definitely be outside camping somewhere with a BBQ, a drink and a pack of cards and some music.

What makes you smile? 

A good cup of tea!

Which song would definitely get you up on the dance floor?
It would have to something that I could belt out at the top of my lungs.  Mr Brightside by the Killers would get me on the dance floor.

Biggest indulgence? 

I don’t tend to splash out too much but I do dine out very often! Probably about four times a week! Sometimes I order two meals just for myself!

Sea or mountains?
This is a very hard question. I have spent a lot of time in the mountains and by the sea. I think I would go mountains, there is nothing better than waking up with fresh snow and blue skies, grabbing a snowboard and hitting the slopes. I love the mountains! 

3 people you would invite round to dinner?

Bear Grylls – I’d like to hear his survival stories
James Bay – so he can sing to me
Heston Blumenthal – to cook the dinner! I’m not a very good cook

The benefits of a school residential trip for teachers and group leaders >

Teachers are amazing! However, with increasing pressures on workload and such a busy job, why take the extra time to organise a school trip? Well, because believe it or not there are many benefits for you, as well as the students. 

Preparing young people for their first residential trip (for the youngsters) >

Every young person is unique - some come across as confident, energetic leaders, whilst others shy away from the limelight to work away in the background. Here at Rockley, we celebrate the achievements of all our students and nurture and mould their skill set. However, no matter how outgoing or confident a young person may be - going on a school trip away from home for the first time, can be scary and daunting which is why we want their first trip away to be a fantastic one! 

We're making waves!
