What Sporting Events do you have at different times of the year?


Please note: We have mainly written about England, as that is the country within the UK where our students live. We would be very happy for schools and visitors to send us information we can add to our website on Wales and Scotland.

Sports have their own special place in the English calendar.


The annual Six-Nations rugby Tournament, involving England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy, starts of the year in January.
