King's College is forward-thinking and a powerhouse of sport in the West Country. Our rugby programme forms a huge part of our sports offering and is well supported by our whole school community. Our aim is to focus on player development and culture by using our strong reputation on the regional rugby scene.
Competition successes are one measure, and we can demonstrate this by our achievements in national cup events and the well-known Rosslyn Sevens. However, another measure is the experience we provide to pupils at King's. Our coaches are excellent, experienced and dedicated, all going the extra mile to ensure pupils not only develop their game but also enjoy it.
We encourage players to follow pathways and opportunities in order to further develop their skills, and we complement this with an excellent strength and conditioning programme.
A limited number of scholarships are offered to players who wish to join our exciting rugby set up, but fundamental to our success is a unique and joined up rugby programme, from our prep school, King's Hall, up through to our players in their final years at King's College.
There are three training sessions available a week and these focus on individual skill development, game play, decision making and team preparation.
The coaching syllabus is reflective of the developmental needs of young players and focuses on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development as well as the requirements of challenge and exploration, encouraging young players to aspire to reach their potential;
