Pre-Season Sports Training starts with a bang!

Rugby and girls hockey squads were treated to intensive pre-season training camps last week, when specialist rugby coaches Brian Ashton and Harlequins player Matt Hopper spent the day at Wells advising students on their technique and providing energising training sessions; the girls’ hockey squad was joined by Rio 2016 player Simon Mantell, who played for Great Britain at the Olympics this summer.

Both squads had an inspiring day – many thanks to under 15 rugby coach Alex Battison and to senior hockey coach James Mayes for setting up this fantastic opportunity or the young players.
