“I started at BGS in Year 7, straight from primary school, so that’s two years now. I really enjoy the academic side of it and it’s been really great so far.
I’d recommend to other people thinking of going to School at BGS – I’d say its great for the academic side and sports facilities are amazing.”

Tell us about your recent success
“Well I’ve just played with West Yorkshire Carnegie for rugby union, I played for old broads, they put me forward to Yorkshire Carnegie, we’ve done three trials now, and I’ve passed through all three of them. I’m really excited and I wish it came quicker to train with them.
I like the contact and the physical running side and more of the, like, kind of aggressive contact side really, and the fitness behind it. It’s not all about the tries and stuff. It really excites me. My team and the staff are really good company and its fun when we go on tours and play games and really fun banter with friends.
My rugby coach is great. We live near each other and we used to play for the same rugby club so that’s nice.
What co-curricular activities do you take part in and how have they helped you?
“I do orienteering and I went to the two orienteering events in Year 7 and 8. I did quite well in them.
Also I do quite a bit of football but I don’t play it much as competitive, it’s more fun based and I do rowing for the School as well which is really fun.
Where do you hope to see yourself in the future?
“I think going further afield, I’d like to do more of a hands on kind of job like sport instead of office based, and I’d like to pursue a Rugby career, that would be good.
I’ve been brought up more of a country boy because I live out in the country and I like being outside, so riding and quad biking and things like that. I don’t have gaming consoles or anything, I don’t find much interest in gaming or anything like TV, I much prefer being outside.
