Congratulations to the Cornish Pirates who have recently overcome Nottingham 38 – 19 in the British and Irish Cup.
An outstanding performance included first half tries from former Mounts Bay students Tom Hendrickson and Kyle Moyle.
We were also pleased to see another former Mounts Bay student, Max Bodilly, get on the score sheet for the Exeter Chiefs in last Saturdays game in Bordeaux.
This comes on the back of the recent news that Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jack Nowell have once again been called up for the England National Team and Deborah Fleming continues to be successful for both club and country.
We also have a number of current students who are part of the Exeter Chiefs Youth Academy and of course our strong association with the Cornish Pirates.
Our High Performance Sports Programme supports many of our students in pursuit of the dreams, we even have a world class professional Snowboarder, Rowan Coultas, in our sporting Hall of Fame. Rowan is a former student who despite living in Cornwall (not famous for it’s snow) was able to undertake his GCSE studies using a bespoke distance learning package created by us whilst training with the British Olympic Team in Austria.
The programme is led by our own Neil Eddy, himself a world class Triathlete, who helps students get the most from their sporting aptitude whilst ensuring their studies do not suffer. We have many students who are currently part of our High Performance Programme, look out for them on our website and in the newsletter.
