Matches take place each Saturday in the autumn term: we field up to 22 teams against traditional rivals such as Eton, Harrow, Radley, Tonbridge, Marlborough and Wellington.
Our sides meet with regular success in the NatWest Schools’ Cup, the U15s reaching the final at Twickenham in 2004 and 2007. In both Rugby 7s and 10s we perform well, too, with the 1st X winning the Powder Byrne Schools’ Six Nations trophy in 2013. The 1st XV compete in the biennial AJ Dingle Cup in the Veterrimi IV, a tournament between the world’s four oldest rugby-playing schools.
Pupils and former pupils have made a reputation at international level, amongst them Chris Berry, Will East, Archie Faulks, Jesse Mander, Richard Mathieson and Hugo Walford.
