ABOUT US

We are a social enterprise that uses rugby to develop character, resilience and confidence in young people in state schools in Lambeth, Southwark & Lewisham.

We use rugby as a tool to develop individual and collective responsibility, promote health, wellbeing and positive nutritional choices, provide opportunities for young people to improve their attainment and attendance at school, whilst also mentoring and supporting them to be the best that they can be.

We work closely with local community rugby clubs to provide pathways for further rugby development, linking clubs, schools and the local community together to forge links that strengthen connections and foster community cohesion. Where appropriate we also provide additional support to disadvantaged children to maintain the inclusive nature of our programme.

Our programme includes breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs as well as core PE curriculum sessions that introduce young people to the game of rugby and its ethos.

Through our coaching we reinforce England Rugby’s core values:

teamwork | respect | enjoyment | discipline | sportsmanship

This supports the development of a wide variety of personal, social and physical skills that together offer young people the opportunity for personal development and enrichment, improving their attainment and attendance at school and offering them the opportunity to be the best that they can be.

In addition we offer personal development for teachers, allowing them to qualify as rugby coaches and become more confident to deliver sessions in school.
