The School of Rugby initiative provides schools with a package of resources which enables more staff to deliver a structured rugby programme in their school, who receive curricular and extra curricular sessions per week.

School of Rugby

The School of Rugby programme aims to build participation so there are more rugby teams and opportunities for the development of girls rugby as well as non-playing opportunities for senior pupils in rugby coaching, refereeing, volunteering and running sport in local primary schools and rugby clubs. The School of Rugby in an inclusive programme, we welcome all levels of ability and rugby experience.

At Trinity Academy the School of Rugby is currently offered to S1-S4. S1-3 participate in 2 x curricular lessons and 3 x extra-curricular lessons, in S4 participation is 1 x curricular lesson and 3 x extra curricular lessons. We  have plans in place to extend the School of Rugby into S5 and 6 in 2015/16 during senior lecture time, as this will minimise impact on pupils’ timetables.

Schools of Rugby provides a context for learning inside and outside of the classroom, allowing all pupils to experience rugby, and help to improve the fitness and physical literacy of players and in turn contribute to greater educational attainment.

Trinity Academy has run the School of Rugby for four years and in that time has seen an increase in the number of pupils playing rugby at the school. Participants have shown a significant improvement in their Key National Themes (skills) and their Physical Competency tests. As a result of these improvements three players from Trinity Academy were chosen to represent Edinburgh this season and five players were invited to train with the City of Edinburgh Rugby Academy.
