It was a huge honour and a privilege to be selected to have a visit from the RBS Six Nations trophy and the Triple Crown.
Pupils were extremely excited to have this opportunity and it was a welcome boost to the already established rugby club.
As an Inner London School in Lewisham where rugby is not always commonplace we are extremely proud that our pupils engage and participate both in the curriculum time and extra-curricular clubs.
Over the past 20 years pupils have participated in a range of fixtures and festivals run by both local and county rugby football unions. We have made close links with local clubs who have provided coaching and support to further embed rugby within the culture of the school. Pete Whittred supported by other PE staff members, has successfully run a Saturday morning rugby club which has seen over 60 pupils attending individual sessions spanning eight years.
Recently we have been supported by the GIVE IT A TRY initiative which has run after school clubs on a Thursday evening. We look forward to next year and our close links with Kent Rugby to further enhance the profile of rugby within the school and increase participation.
