Bedford Modern School student Khaleah Lewis-Vaike, Year 11, was selected to represent England from more than 60 girls in the Independent Schools Football Association training camp at the National Football Centre, Staffordshire in December 2015. The Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA) is responsible for developing and promoting the game of football in the independent education sector and often holds competitions to give students the opportunity to play at the highest level possible. The training camp was held at St George’s Park in Burton upon Trent. The first game on Tuesday 15 December 2015 consisted of a county level match where the ISFA U16 team were unfortunately beaten by the Shropshire Schools team 1-3. It was the next day however where Khaleah, along with her ISFA U16 co-players, gave a great team performance in a magnificent comeback match against the Scotland Independent Schools’ team and won 3-0. Khaleah, who is currently playing in the FA Premiere Ladies league, reflected on her accomplishment saying: “It was a fantastic experience and I really enjoyed the opportunity to represent the school at the ISFA training camp. “I was also singled out by two Scotland coaches who commended my performance and said that they will be watching out for me playing international football for England in the near future, which I was thrilled to hear.” Co-ordinator of Girls’ Games at Bedford Modern School, Heather Gilbert commented: “Khaleah is a very talented footballer and is engaged in a sport that is growing exponentially for women. She is committed, hard-working and her success during the ISFA training camp is testament to that. “We look forward to supporting her in her future football endeavours and quest to achieve international representative honours.”
