English Martyrs is fortunate this year to be working alongside the English RFU. This has meant many great opportunities for our students, including coaching every Thursday after school by an RFU coach. These sessions are open to students who wish to try rugby.
This partnership has also meant that English Martyrs has been provided with a new school kit provided free by Canterbury.
Back in September '15, Daniel Abela, Craig Robinson, Liam Wheatley and Stefan Seica attended an RFU Canterbury Rugby Shirt Designing Workshop.
Throughout the day, our students were required to fully design a brand new Rugby Team shirt for English Martyrs' and develop strategies to promote rugby around school. Their innovation and creativeness have produced these fantastic new rugby shirts in which the school rugby team will now wear for future tournaments.
As part of the programme, one lucky student will also be invited to attend the Six Nations - England v Ireland - Rugby match at Twickenham in order to wear the shirt and sing the National Anthem on the pitch prior to the match.
