Grassroots Girls' Rugby Experience

Students had the opportunity to train with a Women's Premiership and England Rugby player this week.

30 students from all year groups attended an after school training session on Tuesday, which was delivered by 3 students from Durham University.

One of those students was Sophie Shams who is signed for Saracens Women, a team who have the accolade for being the most successful team in the history of Women's Premiership Rugby in England.

All of the students who participated found the experience really enjoyable and it will hopefully spur more on to join our fast-developing girls' rugby team in September.
