Ben Forster

  • Studying Performance Analysis & Coaching at Salford University
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport

Ben was drawn to the College because of the excellent reputation the Rugby Academy had earned from years of success and the quality of the sports facilities, which surpassed what Ben had seen at other colleges’ Open Days.

During his time, Ben points to his class trip to the Monte Gordo sports camp in Portugal, where students trained and learned alongside professional athletes and the work experience he completed at Saddleworth School as two of his big highlights.

“My aim is to now become a teacher, the experience I got at Saddleworth School whilst studying and the positive influence from my own lecturers has really helped me see that as a career I want.

”Firstly, I’ll be studying my degree with Salford University. It’s based at Hopwood Hall which is ideal as it means I can carry on playing for the Rugby Academy whilst earning a higher qualification.”
