Beyond this, Wells Cathedral School pupils will receive additional opportunities such as a Q&A with firstteam players, a visit to Bath Rugby’s training base at Farleigh House, and much more.
Further events will be announced in the coming weeks, including a Bath Rugby Club Roadshow, a Girls’ Rugby Masterclass, and a 2024 Summer Rugby Residential. Tom Webley, Director of Sport at Wells, comments:
