It's fairly easy to work out what two of Lark's great loves in life are – Worcester and sport. And luckily for Lark, she's spent most of her life in Worcester playing sport. Having been born in the city and schooled there at Orleton Primary School and Wigmore High School, Lark now finds herself at the University of Worcester, studying Primary Education with QTS (qualified teacher status) and in her spare time she does “casual work at Teme Leisure in Ludlow both lifeguarding and teaching swimming.” No prizes for guessing which team she supports... Yup, that'll be Worcester Warriors.
Her sister has represented Great Britain in swimming and Lark isn't too bad in the water either having swam for Shropshire and gained a level 2 swimming coach qualification. She still plays rounders and netball in the local leagues and also played county cricket for Herefordshire... We haven't even got onto her rugby CV yet!
After starting at the age of eight, Lark went onto Luctonians RFC, followed by Greyhounds RFC before joining Worcester Under 18s and onto represent England Under 20s in the 2013 Nations Cup. She was also part of the RFU U18 Talent Development Group for two years and played Midlands U18 rugby and captained them for a year.
She's a big admirer of Jonny Wilkinson and former England captain, Catherine Spencer but outside of rugby it's all about gold medal winning athletes for Lark. And top of her list are Jessica Ennis, Chris Hoy and Melissa “Missy” Franklin - the four-time Olympic Gold medal-winning swimmer, who was born in the same year as Lark.
