The forthcoming school Rugby Tour to South Africa will take place in July 2018.

Pupils currently in years 11, 12 and 13 will be travelling to South Africa to experience an opportunity of a lifetime and one that will enable the pupils to play rugby in a foreign country, spend time experiencing a different culture, as well helping them to mature as players, individuals and as a team.
