Year Two visit Andover Rugby Club - Mrs O’Leary has been working to establish a link between our school and the Andover Rugby club. We have been invited for a day to the club to spend some time using their facilities to run our own outdoors lesson, and then we will tour the club to see what happens during matches and how the clubhouse is used!

Year One visit Andover Rugby Club- We are hoping that Year One can also visit Andover Rugby Club to take part in the clubhouse tour and an outdoors lesson following a successful visit by Year Two!
