Rugby

Rugby is delivered in the autumn (second half) and spring terms with matches being played throughout the winter months.

The sport, like Football and Cricket, is deemed of great value to the boys and, as such, all boys have the opportunity to play Rugby. Probably more than any other sport or activity, the development of Rugby has benefited most from the All-Weather Surface, built to International Rugby Board (IRB) standards. When delivering a sport throughout the unpredictable winter months, this facility’s positive impact for the boys and their rugby cannot be underestimated. Three senior grass pitches at Almshouse Lane complete the facility for Rugby at Shrewsbury House School.

The senior boys are given the opportunity biannually to travel to South Africa in the Easter holidays. This trip is open to all senior boys and is an opportunity for boys from different school teams to play together on a sporting and cultural adventure.

At Shrewsbury House we like to celebrate the development of all boys of all abilities.

We take pride in hosting and participating in many inter-school rugby festivals including at regional and national levels.

We are delighted to be one of the pioneer schools in the Return2Play programme supporting the well-being and health of our pupils –http://return2play.org.uk.

We are also proud to be to be part of the Quilter Kids First scheme which encourages sportsmanship and inclusivity https://www.quilter.com/about-us/sponsorship/quilter-kids-first/.

Shrewsbury House’s Head of Rugby is Mr D Leek, a former professional player with London Wasps and London Scottish and ex-RFU Community Coach. Mr Leek leads an extremely talented, experienced and motivated staff.

Expert coaching coupled with the huge pride the boys have in representing their school undoubtedly gives them the edge and makes them formidable opponents.
