Boys Rugby Festival

We are thrilled to share the exhilarating experience our students had at the recent full contact rugby festival hosted by the prestigious Leicester Tigers. The event not only provided a platform for our budding athletes to showcase their skills but also served as a remarkable learning opportunity, enabling them to grasp the rules and nuances of competitive rugby.

For many of our students, this festival marked their first foray into the world of competitive contact games. Despite initial nerves, they approached the challenge with determination and enthusiasm, embodying the spirit of sportsmanship throughout the event. Under the guidance of Leicester Tigers' experienced coaches, our students honed their techniques and developed a deeper understanding of the game, paving the way for confident performances on and off the field.

One of our students, Jayden, encapsulated the sentiment of the day perfectly, stating, "It was a good trip for players to join in and learn from the Leicester Tigers’ coaches whilst we were playing. It was really enjoyable." Jayden's words echo the sentiments of many, highlighting the invaluable experience gained through participation in such events.


Beyond the thrill of competition, the festival fostered a sense of camaraderie among our students. As they played alongside their peers, they learned to communicate effectively, strategise as a team, and support one another through every tackle and try. These collaborative efforts not only enhanced their performance on the field but also reinforced the importance of unity and teamwork in achieving success.

As educators, witnessing our students thrive in a challenging yet rewarding environment fills us with immense pride. We commend each and every student who participated in the festival for their dedication, resilience, and sportsmanship. Their achievements serve as a testament to the power of determination and the boundless potential that lies within each of them.

As we reflect on the memorable experiences shared at the Leicester Tigers festival, we look forward to witnessing our students continue to grow and flourish both on and off the rugby field. With each game played and lesson learned, they inch closer to their goals, equipped with the skills, confidence, and unwavering spirit needed to succeed.

Here's to many more adventures and triumphs in the world of rugby!
