RFU helps students design new rugby kit

Four pupils attended a special workshop on Thursday 24th September to design our new rugby kit.  This formed part of the £10,000 worth of support we’ve received from the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

The Year 7 and 8 students, Archie Brooks, George Pardoe, Harry Homer and Charles Hawken, who took part in the interactive session hosted by Canterbury, leading producers of rugby kits, first learnt about the importance of the rugby shirt, the sport’s values and culture and practicalities on style.

They then worked with Canterbury to design a unique kit for our school, which is currently being made and will be delivered soon.

We will also be using the RFU support to provide coaching in lessons for both boys and girls in years 7 and 8, develop young rugby leaders, offer additional staff training and provide more local competition.

Bryn Thomas, Headteacher said, “Rugby is very popular at the school and thanks to the World Cup, more students are taking an interest.  The support from the RFU will help us to convert that interest into participation and improve the skills of our students.  Those that attended the workshop thoroughly enjoyed it and I look forward to seeing our rugby teams in our new student designed kit.”
