We were delighted to virtually welcome Dr Jamie Roberts to kick off this term’s Wednesday Webinar Series.
Thank to his friendship with Director of Cricket, Mike Powell, pupils, staff and parents were invited to enjoy a chat with the accomplished Rugby Union player. Mike introduced Dr Roberts with a detailed history of his rugby career, including representing Wales and British and Irish Lions. Off the pitch however, Jamie is also a qualified doctor, studied at Cambridge and is currently continuing his studies at Loughborough.
The sportsman is incredibly passionate about education and discussed the skills and attributes needed to balance a high profile sporting career on top of his demanding medical studies and work, the journey he has taken to get there and the importance of courage and resilience.
Jamie kindly stayed on the line to answer as many questions as possible from our budding sportsmen and women and academic high flyers as well as a number from parents and staff.
