Our Sporting Ethos

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.

we expect all of our pupils to be resilient, gracious, selfless and willing.

Part of a Team

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 Resilient, 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 sports practices with innovative coaching and daily specialist clinics in all focus sports – Rugby, Hockey, Football, Netball, Rowing and Cricket. Strength and Conditioning is available for all pupils at RGS Worcester and incorporates innovative new techniques.

Athlete Development Programme

We recognise that some athletes will have sporting expertise outside our focus sports, such as Cross-Country, Equestrian, Fencing, Golf and Swimming, to name just a few and make up a part of our successful Athlete Development Programme (ADP).

In conjunction with the ADP Programme, RGS offer ‘Focus Sport’ Scholarships. The ADP works with each athlete to provide a balance for both their sporting endeavours and academic work.

Sporting Events

Crowds measured in their thousands watch the annual winter focussed sports – First Team Rugby, Hockey, Football and Netball fixtures with local friends and rivals King’s School at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium and Worcester University Indoor Arena, respectively. Flagge Meadow hosts our summer focus sport of Cricket, where pupils enter County and National tournaments. Rowing completes our focus sports provision and takes place at our Boat House on the nearby River Severn. 

Our state-of-the-art hockey pitches at the Worcester International Hockey Centre allow us to host County and Regional Hockey tournaments. Flagge Meadow has hosted many fixtures for Worcestershire County Cricket Club. Pupils also benefit from the use of our floodlit AstroTurf at RGS The Grange and sports pitches, as well as St Oswalds sports pitches and Athletics facilities and two indoor Sports Halls.

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. In February 2023, pupils enjoyed our Cricket Tour to India, and in July 2022, our pupils went on a Rugby Tour to Canada, whilst the Hockey and Netball teams enjoyed visiting Barbados.
