In total 10 places were available on the U15 squad and a further six in the U13 category.
To gain selection ranking points were accumulated from national events throughout the year.
Reed said: “I’m so pleased to have been selected. It has been a season of highs and lows, making tough decisions and putting in the hours, but having this selection makes it all worth it.”
Two of the other Academy fencers selected, Evie Bullman and Amber Smith, who are both in the U15 squad, are from Welwyn Hatfield.
