Dear Parents

Welcome to the 2017-18 sports programme.

Congratulations to the 1st XV who beat King William College, isle of Man on Saturday 45-0

On Saturday, the first rugby games for everyone commence. The Under 12s & 1st XV are away at Rydal School, Colwyn Bay (LL29 7BT). We will meet outside of the main school at 7:55am with a 1pm-1:15pm return anticipated. The boys will travel by bus to and from the fixture although parents are welcome to come and watch by car.

The under 13s, 14s and 15s are all at home meeting at the field at 9:15am for a 10:15am start. The boys will be fed at both venues. For the home fixtures, there is also a rugby café selling hot and cold drinks and bacon sandwiches.

Can all boys arrive in school tracksuit if they have them or uniform please.
