ST EDWARD’S r h u b a r b 20

When Eddie came to Teddies The whole School was delighted to

welcome the England Rugby squad back to Teddies for a Six Nations training camp in February. Pupils walking to and from lessons were able to spot some of the great players such as Owen Farrell, George Ford and Manu Tuilagi. The 1st XV enjoyed an afternoon coaching session with Eddie Jones and Neal Hatley, while the junior sports scholars were given invaluable advice by England’s strength and conditioning experts. The 1st XV were delighted to be crowned County Champions in December. Rowing Gold Teddies first gold medal at the National Schools’ Regatta since 2003 was won last summer by an impressive WJ15 crew who had to row twice to secure their victory after a crew was impeded in the first race. In one of last year’s most dramatic sporting highlights, having achieved silver in the first final, the girls displayed immense strength and determination to power through to a gold medal – our first ever in this category.
