We welcome the news from the RFU on the ‘Return to Rugby Roadmap’. As a school, we will be on Stage D1 when the pupils return, adhering to all the general safety protocols that have been in place throughout the year.

It’s wonderful to see light at the end of the tunnel and we are as delighted as clubs and players across the country that  we will soon be able to resume training and, subject to each step on government’s roadmap being achieved, progress towards contact fixtures and an exciting season of rugby for 2021/22 from September.

While we are all incredibly excited about getting back out on the pitch, we are also conscious of the need to build-up gradually after a long layoff. The focus for all activity over the next few months will be on player fitness and player safety.

James Honeyben, Head of Rugby
