Darcey Harry | Golfer
Darcey Harry is a talented young golfer who competes all over the world in tournaments. Studying at King's InterHigh gives her the flexibility to put in the extra hours she needs on the golf course as she works towards her goal of becoming a professional golfer.
"This school is perfect for any athlete. I would recommend this online school to anyone involved in golf. The teachers are superb and help you with your studies. Lesson times fit perfectly with my daily golf routine and I get a lot more time to train and I’m improving rapidly."
Fitting in your studies around your sporting career must be challenging, why did you join King's InterHigh and how does it compare to your previous educational experiences?
King’s InterHigh fits perfectly into my training schedule as I have mainly morning lessons. I then have the rest of the day to play golf, whereas in a physical school I did not get the opportunity to play for the hours I need to put in to become a top player.
You can study at King's InterHigh wherever there’s an internet connection, where is the most unusual place you’ve had a live lesson?
I’ve taken live lessons at King’s InterHigh all around the world. I have had many lessons in an airport or car. I would never have thought it was possible to do live lessons in this way before studying at King’s InterHigh.
Can you describe why King's InterHigh is a good option for young golfers? Would you recommend it to your peers and if so why?
King’s InterHigh is great. I would recommend this online school to anyone involved in golf. The teachers are superb and help you with your studies. Lesson times fit perfectly with my daily golf routine and I get a lot more time to train and I’m improving rapidly. I take work away with me whilst at a tournament, so I really do not miss a lesson. This school is perfect for any athlete.
What’s your ambition in the sport, long term and short term? What are your targets for the next few years?
My goal for next year is to get into the Great Britain and Ireland Under 16s team for the Junior Vaglino Trophy against the continent of Europe. My long-term goal is to graduate from King’s InterHigh with top grades to get into a top US college where I can play golf and then from there gain my tour card.
