Our Mad Dog Rugby programme hit the ground running this September at Park House School. Our squad, along with our brilliant coaches have integrated quickly and already displaying the values and behaviours expected by Mad Dog students. We are excited about how they will progress this year.
Headteacher Derek Peaple said: “I am thrilled that students will now have the exciting opportunity to combine their academic studies in the Sixth Form with an integrated rugby coaching programme led and delivered by one of England’s all-time greats. Thanks to the generous support of the Greenham Trust this unique programme will inspire and support young local players to achieve their very best both in the classroom and on the rugby field.”
