RUGBY

Rugby has been played at Mill Hill School since 1869, and established its reputation as a rugby playing school from the outset. During the inter-war years, Mill Hill rugby was at its strongest – and the Old Millhillians were regarded as first class club fielding sides, at times including five internationals, several Blues and numerous county players. Over the years Mill Hill has produced a large number of international rugby players. After a quiet spell, during which time the school became co-educational, the rugby at Mill Hill has continued to grow in strength. Our Upper Sixth regularly represent Saracens Academy and in recent years, three of our players have signed contracts with major clubs, Wasps and Saracens. We have close links with Premiership Club, Saracens and every year we are fortunate enough to play some of our games at Allianz Park, often under lights. We have a strong and competitive fixture list and will play up to 12 teams throughout the School on any one match day. Whether your son is an experienced player or not, he will receive exciting and varied coaching sessions and is likely to represent the School at some stage in his School career.

The 1st XV regularly tours overseas and has visited Australia, Fiji, Canada, New Zealand and South America in recent years and, every October, our junior sides have the opportunity to tour a European country. We annually offer our Lower Sixth pupils a fantastic opportunity to travel to Zambia, to work with local teachers and volunteers, to deliver Tag Rugby coaching to government primary schools and orphanages over a two week period.

I am positive your son will enjoy his rugby at Mill Hill. There is something for all levels.

Three Old Millhillians in 1930 England Team
Mill Hill had the unique honour of having three ex-pupils in the same England rugby team for a number of matches in 1930. Pictured here are the famous trio Howard, Sobey and Spong before their match against Ireland in that year.
