Gabriel completed his studies at Trinity School having achieved A-levels in Economics, Maths and Chemistry. He has put a maths degree at City University, London on hold while his rugby career takes off.

‘Trinity has inspired me greatly to pursue a career in Rugby. My proudest achievement is learning the game of Rugby, achieving the U20s honours and now training for the Harlequins professionally. I wouldn’t be where I am now without Trinity – it’s where I first picked up the rugby ball and progressed through my career, so massive thanks to the teachers and coaches that supported me through it.

Since leaving school, I have learnt to take every opportunity as it comes. You don’t get many of them and you’ve got to make each opportunity count so grab them with both hands.

John Whitgift Foundation bursary support has helped me massively. Without it, a lot of people like me would not have the opportunity to come to a school like Trinity where there are amazing opportunities available to you. It has helped a lot in terms of progression and finding out what I can do as an individual as well as in a group.’
