Shapwick School Welcomes New Sports Patron  

Former Bath Rugby captain Stuart Hooper paid a visit to Shapwick this week and was proudly introduced to the students as our new Sports Patron. 

Hooper, who still holds a vital role within Bath Rugby as performance and player director met all the students and gave an inspiring talk to the whole school around leadership and what it means to him. Stuart also took questions from the students and gave autographs for our rugby enthusiasts, staff and pupils.

Stuart will be returning to Shapwick in July to present the inaugural "Hooper Cup" which will be awarded to the student who has shown the greatest leadership skills on and off the pitch.

Being toured around the school Stuart told the students how impressed he was with the standard of work in the classroom, the atmosphere within the school and of course, the lovely school dinners.
