Jade recently joined the coaching team, but has been a regular fixture at the Foundation for over a year.

Having left school in 2017, Jade joined the HITZ Learning Academy and quickly emerged as a young leader with huge potential. She then started volunteering with Bath Rugby Foundation two months in which she said ‘increased her confidence and leadership skills’.

Jade has a sporting background having played football for both Westbury Youth FC and Trowbridge Town ladies in her school years.

Before Jade joined the HITZ Learning Academy Jade admits that she "had no interest in rugby and didn’t want anything to do with it" but after participating in a few rugby sessions she started to get the hang of the game and became more interested in it. She now plays for Bath Rugby Ladies scoring two tries on her debut for the 2nd XV.

During the time volunteering with the Foundation she has achieved many things such as being able to coach tennis with a tennis coach and learn new skills from her. In April Jade's image appeared on the limited-edition Bath Rugby shirts the players wore at The Clash. She was selected to be a part of the Bath Rugby Foundation XV due to her outstanding success as a HITZ student.
