The Basics

School of Rugby is open to both boys and girls in S1-S3. Sessions are delivered by qualified rugby coaches.

Number of Periods

Students are withdrawn from 3 curricular classes a week. A mandatory supported study session is in place for all School of Rugby students to catch up on work missed. This takes place on Thursday lunchtime and is supervised by a member of staff.


Students are expected to wear the School of Rugby kit that has been provided for them. Students should provide their own boots and gum shield.

The Course

School of Rugby students follow a programme designed by the SRU.

Entry Process

Students interested in being part of the School of Rugby must take part in a trial. A baseline level of skilled performance is required but selection also takes into account additional factors.

What we expect

School of Rugby students are expected to display exemplary conduct across the school, maintain high levels of achievement, attend supported study and play for the school rugby team.
