26th February 2020 — Two BCS pupils are celebrating being selected for the prestigious Bath Academy U15 Academy and strengthening their relationship with the Premiership side.

Adam Dew & Blake Colton both attend the Dorset-based school, which has a School Partnership with Bath Rugby; they were selected for the Academy after impressing in the Bath Developing Player Programme (DPP) and performing well at the festival day against the other Bath Rugby DPP centres.

This is a huge achievement for the boys and is the start of their pathway to professional rugby. They begin their Bath journey with an induction day at Farleigh House and are then straight into a competitive Dorset and Wiltshire County programme where they will be monitored by Bath.

Mike Pope, Director of Rugby at BCS explained "This is an incredible achievement for both boys, and a huge step on their journey to pursuing Rugby at an elite level. Both Adam and Blake have shown fantastic commitment and dedication to their training, and are now reaping the well-earned rewards. I am incredibly proud of them and look forward to seeing them progress and improve."
