Beth Tweddle '03

Beth left Queen’s in 2003, and after taking a gap year to train for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, went on to study Sports Science at Liverpool John Moores University where she graduated in 2007 with a 2:1. She has since completed a masters in Sporting Directorship in 2020 at the University of Salford. 

When starting Sixth Form, Beth was sure that she wanted to follow a career pathway of physiotherapists and studied Biology and Physics at A-level. Due to her gymnastics career, she only completed these 2 A- levels but with the support of the school, she was able to gain access to university.

Beth believes that Queen's gave her more than just an academic education, it taught her the skills that enabled and supported her in her future plans. 

Since leaving Queen's, Beth completed her Undergrad and did a foundation year ready to start her Physiotherapy degree but having completed that and her Gymnastics career in 2013, she found that her path was to go in a slightly different direction. In 2010, Beth started her own company alongside Steve Parry, Beth Tweddle Gymnastics, encouraging young children into the sport that she loves. She wants to give every child the opportunity to have a go at gymnastics, whether that is during National curriculum lessons in primary school, or in an after-school capacity.
