Rugby at Stowe has evolved over recent years becoming a huge attraction for would be Rugby enthusiasts, whether they are seeking a professional career in the game or simply enjoying participating at their own level. We provide for all and believe the coaching structure helps players of all ability to achieve their maximum potential. As a result our fixture list has developed into a extremely competitive program which stretches our intake. Often they are much larger schools than us and do require some travel, but the results are extremely encouraging. We field 5 Senior teams and 3 or 4 Junior teams at each U16, U15 and U14 level. Our U14s play Rugby in the Lent term affording them the opportunity to work with our top age group coaches in the second term so the platform from which we wish them to build their development is solid and reflects our style of play when they reach the sixth form. All our teams have two members of staff coaching them during the week. We currently have three staff members who are themselves former 1st XV coaches at their previous schools, a former European Cup winning coach, the Oxford University Greyhounds coach all headed up by Alan Hughes the former England U18 Head Coach.
For our top teams all of our fixtures are Daily Mail Schools Trophy status and we currently enter the biggest national knock out trophy, the Nat West Cup at both U18 and U15 level. We are also the current holders of the Rosslyn Park National 7s Trophy.
