Richmond Rugby Community Department are delighted to announce that they have secured an unprecedented 11 partner schools to help with rugby coaching from the start of the new academic year in September. Local primary schools East Sheen, Barnes, Deer Park and The Russell School have asked us to run either breakfast clubs, after school Tag Rugby clubs or our ground breaking literacy programme “Reading Rugby”.

Local state secondary schools Orleans Park Twickenham, Grey Court School Richmond, Chiswick School, Twickenham School and Christ’s School Richmond have also partnered with the club to help both curriculum and extra-curricular rugby.

We are also helping the Fulham Boys School with their daily curriculum Rugby programme for all their students.

Grey Court school have asked the Community team to coach and manage their sixth form first XV as have the Richmond-Upon-Thames College.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our partner schools to various events at The Richmond Athletic Ground, which started with a Community Match day at the end of August.
