Rugby

All boys have the chance to represent their school at rugby

Senior rugbyRugby Union is the major boys' sport in the Michaelmas term. We regularly field 9 teams with 'A' and 'B' teams up to and including the u-16 age group and 3 senior teams at u-18 level. This means that all boys who wish to represent the school at Rugby will have an opportunity to do so. All sides will train at least twice a week. Fixtures take place mainly on Saturdays, but also in midweek on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We have 4 home pitches, 2 on each of our picturesque sports grounds, Longmead and Landham.

The school also enter the Daily Mail Cup and Rugby 7's competitions such as Rosslyn Park. Internally, we also run very competitive House 7's competitions for juniors and seniors and at 'A' and 'B' level.

The Rugby club has strong links with local clubs including Bath Juniors, Avon, Bradford Upon Avon and Oldfield with our players being encouraged to develop their rugby experience further. The most talented players will have the chance to attend trials for Somerset Schools and/or Bath Rugby's academy.

Most of the coaches within the club have had significant rugby coaching and playing experience and benefit from regular coaching and refereeing INSET. All are encouraged to become qualified to at least UKCC level 1.
