The Rugby Football union’s former president popped in to see students at Gordano School.

Bob Reeves visited sixth formers in Portishead to talk about the Foundation for Leadership Through Sport programme, which he co-founded. It seeks to encourage and develop leadership skills within sport.

Jeanne Fairs, Gordano’s head of sixth form, said: “We were thrilled when we heard Bob was willing to come in and inspire our sixth form students.

“We are always delighted to introduce our students to influential business people from the wider world, and Bob provided an interesting and engaging afternoon, with plenty of new ideas around the theme of leadership to think through.”
