Sport

The RGS sporting ethos can be split in to two main strands; Performance and Values.

At the heart of ‘Performance’ lies an ambition to ensure ‘each and every child is fulfilling their potential. The majority of pupils play sport for the School, taking with them the benefits of their sporting experiences into their future lives. Many of our pupils pursue and develop their sport beyond school in local clubs and we are very proud of the many pupils we have who have represented at a National level across a wide range of different sports.

Our Charter for Sport describes the ‘Values’ that we promote and look to develop. To join a school like RGS Worcester is to join a community and become part of a team. Like any team, it thrives on the trust and commitment that its members show to each other and the values that those teammates share. As such, we expect all of our pupils to be Resolute, Gracious, Selfless and Willing and to be proud of ‘Being Green’.

While our programme is based on traditional team sports, the pupils’ experience is of up to date, innovative coaching. Sports practices and specialist clinics are a daily occurrence in all the major sports. Our lead coaches ensure that the coaching within each sport, as well as the essential Fitness, Strength and Conditioning, incorporate new developments.  These innovations also enable us to support sportsmen and women in sports outside of our traditional programmes such as Cross-Country, Fencing, Equestrian and Swimming to name just a few and make up a part of our successful Athlete Development Programme.

Crowds measured in their thousands watch the annual First Team Rugby, Football and Netball fixtures with local friends and rivals King’s School at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium and Indoor Arena respectively. Our new state of the art hockey pitches at the Worcester International Hockey Centre allows us to host County and Regional Hockey tournaments and we also have at our disposal the floodlit AstroTurf at RGS The Grange. Flagge Meadow has hosted many fixtures for Worcestershire County Cricket Club and Athletics and Rowing complete the major sports with training based at St Oswald’s or on the nearby River Severn. There are exciting plans for future facility development at RGS, including an indoor tennis and netball centre that will provide another fantastic indoor facility to add to our existing indoor facilities of Cobham Hall and Tom Savage Hall.

RGS Worcester organises many major overseas sports tours which give the pupils an opportunity to play against some of the best sports schools across the world and to experience a variety of cultures, enriching the pupils’ sport and experience work. In 2022, the boys will be going on a Rugby Tour to Canada whilst the Hockey and Netball teams are visiting Barbados.

In conjunction with the ADP Programme,(ADP) RGS offers both ‘Major Sport’ and ‘Niche Sport’ Scholarships. We recognise that some athletes will have sporting expertise outside our major sports and the ADP fully supports their involvement and works with each athlete to provide a balance for both their sporting endeavours and academic work.
