Albion scrum-half Setter to take up new teaching role at Plymouth Studio School

PLYMOUTH Studio School will be boosting their teaching staff in September with the arrival of Albion and Devon scrum-half Cameron Setter.

The 24-year-old will join the specialist sports academy as a maths teacher for the new academic year.

Setter, who has played for Albion for the past four seasons and who has agreed a new one-year contract, joins a team of sporting and teaching professionals led by principal Mark Cahill, a former basketball player with the Plymouth Raiders.

The team also includes former Commonwealth Games track and field medallist, Katherine Endacott-Foster, former squash professional Steve Mooney, rugby coach Steve Petrie and head of sports performance and sports psychologist Jon Rhodes, who has worked with the GB Olympic fencing teams and is currently providing specialist support to Argyle players.

Cahill said: “It’s fantastic to add another teacher with a professional sporting background to the Plymouth Studio School team.

“Our whole philosophy is about helping students to succeed in the classroom and in their sporting achievements, so it’s great to have teachers who provide excellent role models in both.”

Top young athletes already attending the specialist school, which is based at Plymouth Marjon University, include top ranking GB Modern Pentathlon, Kay Bryson, international diver Matt Dixon, Taekwondo British and world champions, Tate Budge and Rhys Roffey, GB women’s rugby player, Lizzie Cole and swimmer Harry Noble.
