Rugby Results

The Under 12 squad took 20 boys to Rydal School for what for many was their first taste of Rugby and managed to end the game as a 45 all draw in a very encouraging performance.

The under 13s lost 35-5 despite a positive start.

The Under 14s won 39-15 in an excellent performance.

The under 15s won 51-0 in an excellent win

The 1st XV won 31-5 in an outstanding performance. Adam Wood scored 21 points with two tries, four conversions and a penalty. Luke Shorrock and Luke Monaghan also scored in a great 19 man effort.

Saturday Rugby

This Saturday the under 12s & 1st XV entertain Liverpool College at home; an 8:55am meet at the Games field for a 10am start. Unfortunately at Under 12 level Liverpool College are only bringing one team so we may need to pick a smaller squad.

The Under 13, 14 & 15 meet at 8:30 at the main school for the short trip to Liverpool College. We will return by 12pm. If you are going straight there the postcode is L18 8BG. Please inform your coach before Saturday if you plan to go direct and be there for 9am.

The pupils will be bused to fixtures throughout the season. Team-sheets will be on the board by Thursday at 8:30am where pupils tick off to confirm. Should they be unavailable, please notify staff by letter by the Wednesday prior to the match.

Midweek Rugby

The 1st XV and Under 16s travel to Altrincham Grammar School on Wednesday. The 1st XV match is a cup match. We will leave at 12:30pm to return for 5pm-530pm depending on traffic.

Rugby Café

For all home games, we run a Rugby Café from 9am-1130am at the school field. We sell Lucozade, bacon butties, tea, coffee and emergency Gum-Shields. The boys will be fed after games.


Football matches start next week. Please ask the pupils to check the board for details

Health & Safety

Please can you ensure on Match Days and all other days that parents and pupils do not enter by foot by the road. There is also a pedestrian entrance to the fields and this is much safer to use.


We hope your children have a wonderful year of sport; with such a wide range of activities we hope that all pupils get involved in at least one activity per week.
