Rugby has a great tradition at the school and the school is very pleased to retain its strong links to Old Cryptians RFC.  Several senior tours to Canada and South Africa have occurred in past years and a plans for another tour to South Africa or Argentina in 2019 are being made.

Pupils of all abilities are given the opportunity to develop their skills at their own pace and the School maintains a strong and very competitive fixture list, with games predominately taking place on a Saturday morning against other local grammar, comprehensive and independent schools. We offer A, B and C team fixtures where possible in the junior age leading up to 1st and 2nd XV as a senior squad. Each year we enter regional and national competitions, such as the Natwest Cup and EDF County Cup which our Year 9s won in 2016.

Many individuals have represented the Gloucester District, County, South West and England Schools, including a strong representation in the current Gloucester RFC Academy and DPP squads.
