Rugby at Newbattle

Rugby has grown in popularity in recent years, and is now one of our most popular and successful sports, run with the Scottish Ruby Union (SRU) development team.

Rugby is coached outdoors on the rugby pitch by SRU coaches and Newbattle staff. We give our pupils the opportunitiy to take part in rugby as:

The Rugby Academy in December 2009


  • a compulsory part of the core PE course taken by all pupils.
  • part of our extra curricular sport programme, coached by Mr Paton.
  • a Rugby Academy option for two periods per week in S2 and S3.

The school rugby team competes against other schools from across the Lothians.
