On Wednesday 5th September, Worthing College welcomed Harlequins Ladies rugby staff to run a session as part of their pre-season preparations. It was great to have the Harlequins in visiting our Rugby Academy girls to work together on inspiring the next generation.
Our Women’s Rugby Academy, plays at the highest standard in the UK and we are the only centre in the South East of England to offer a high level academic and sporting programme with the aim of producing young players for the England RFU set up.
We have a strong pedigree and have already supplied players to the Harlequins Women's first team squad in Bobbie Haywood and Izzy Mayhew.
Our Sporting Excellence Academy provides students with the platform to develop their academic and playing performance with the opportunity to progress through the England pathway. During their time with us our students have produced some outstanding results in the classroom, which have allowed students to progress into their chosen field, whether it be in employment, apprenticeships or University.
We are looking forward to seeing the Harlequins again on Saturday 15th September, where our students will be supporting the team when they play Bristol Bears at the Stoop.
