St Mary’s students were invited to take part in their very first Harlequins Rugby Development Day just before half-term. Our students played in several matches against other schools - showing amazing team work, spirit and determination. Having checked through the school archives dating back to 1955, we are confident that this team were the very first to represent St Mary’s in a full-contact rugby competition in our school’s history.
We are delighted that our relationship with Harlequins is going from strength to strength. While it will be some time before our school is able to compete fully against other local schools who have successfully played rugby over many years - this has been a wonderful start in this new sport for our school.
