My Hartpury experience
“I’d wanted to go to Hartpury ever since I’d seen the sports facilities while I was playing in a rugby tournament at Hartpury while still at school.
“On the academic side, all the tutors and the classes for my A-levels were great, while in terms of developing my rugby and kicking on with that, it was definitely the best place I could have gone to.
“The facilities are amazing and you’ve got the opportunity to train every day – it’s like a professional set-up.”
