Brand new Schools Partnership programme launched across Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset

21 June 2021

Bath Rugby schools team are committed to using the power of our sport to motivate, educate and inspire all individuals within our community.

We believe that by delivering high quality, accessible opportunities, we can inspire the next generation of rugby players and supporters.  For the 2021/22 academic year, we are launching a new partnership for the 2021/22 academic year, linking Bath Rugby with schools throughout Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.

Bath Director of Rugby Stuart Hooper said:

“These packages will provide value through the power of sport and develop long-term, sustainable links with all schools. School sport is the beginning of all players journeys into rugby and it’s vital we are helping facilitate first-class, enjoyable experiences."

Working alongside selected schools, Bath Rugby have created a series of tailored programmes designed to reflect the respective environments of those throughout the catchment area. Moving forward, all schools will have the opportunity to select one of the three partnership options – Blue, Black and White.

Heywood Preparatory School's Director of Sport Chris Knight said:

“Heywood Prep Corsham and Bath Rugby have enjoyed an extremely close relationship over the past four years. Heywood have regularly appeared as matchday flagbearers, which has been an incredible experience for our children, whilst Bath Community Rugby have run after school rugby sessions for our Prep pupils. Bath RFC have always been exceptionally accommodating to Heywood and we have been extremely fortunate to have benefitted from some outstanding outreach opportunities, including a recent Q & A with 1st XV player, Tom de Glanville. We are extremely thankful for all that they have done, and long may it continue.”

Southbroom St James Academy Head Teacher Gareth Bailey said:

"The partnership between our school and the club has grown from strength to strength each year that we have been involved as a community school. This is link is superbly run by Lewis and the club, providing great opportunities of immeasurable value to our children who have thoroughly loved every part of their Bath Rugby experiences so far. 

"The mixture of curriculum delivery, after school clubs, TAG rugby festivals, roadshows, Q&A sessions with first teams players and the opportunity to become a ‘Premiership Rugby Champion’ school has really helped involved more of our children in the sport and support of the Blue, Black and White."
