Our Rugby coaches, including experienced and current National League players, support students both on the field and off. All players get the chance to develop their stamina, hone their skills and learn new tactics.

Opportunities to excel

We offer regular competitive opportunities with matches, played on a weekly basis, against other local schools. The focus is very much on providing the right level of challenge to ensure our students love the game and make excellent progress.

Alongside games afternoons students can take part in after School and lunchtime practices, there is also a performance programme where those identified will receive additional position specific and conditioning work.


Michaelmas Term: XV’s Rugby (reduced numbers for younger age groups) with a focus on tactical and team development.

Lent Term: Continued technical development alongside 7’s Rugby for applicable age groups.

Competitions and special events

  • Rosslyn Park RFU National 7’s Rugby Competition at U13 and U14.
  • RFU National XV Rugby Age-Grade Cup Competitions.

Notable achievements

We are proud to consistently have students selected for the Northampton Saints DPP, and that we are able to offer appropriate support across the different aspects of physical, mental and technical and tactical development.


We are delighted to continue as the main sponsor of Woodbridge RFU Youth Section.

Alongside our Head of Rugby Jamie Gage, professional and international level experience and expertise is also offered by Dr Lou Rickard and Carlton Littlechild.
