Rugby is played throughout the two winter terms with up to 18 sides competing against Midlands schools each Saturday. Every week up to five U12 XVs, three U13 XVs and two from each of the subsequent years are fielded. This means that there is a great opportunity for all to participate and over 200 school fixtures per season.
The school has five pitches on South Field, immediately in front of the school buildings, and a 1st XV pitch at our Eastern Road playing fields. The school also plays host to a Worcester Warriors Junior Academy Centre, which enables young rugby players from across the West Midlands to be provided with a clear and structured pathway to professional rugby.
A feature of rugby at King Edward’s School is the senior tour every two years. Recent destinations have included: Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South Africa.
Collective and individual honours are regularly achieved, from Birmingham Cup victories and success in the national Daily Mail Cup to county representative honours and international schoolboy selection.
