Jamie Jones Buchanan
I am a former student of Priesthorpe and a father of four boys the oldest of which is in his first year at the school.
Priesthorpe formed my earliest environment in which I thrived and developed a foundation of skills and education that allowed me to go on to be a professional Rugby league player for over 20 years.
I have been a Professional player for Leeds since signing for them as a Priesthorpe pupil at 15-year-old back in 1997. I have since been fortunate to enjoy a 20-year career at Leeds Rhinos during a period where the club has enjoyed the clubs most successful period in its 120-year history.
I am also a trustee of Leeds Rhinos foundation – the charitable arm of the Leeds Rhinos, who’s moto is: “to change lives through sport”. Where possible, I hope to do just this by joining the dots in my sporting experiences and influences; to help Priesthorpe pupils grab the opportunity to fulfil their own potential at Priesthorpe Co-Op Academy.
