Prior to Covid the department launched a rugby and netball tour to South Africa to coincide with the Lions Rugby Tour in the summer of 2021.  In addition we introduced a Junior Sports Tour (football & hockey) to Holland for October 2021.  with students training at Vitesse Arnhem.  Whilst these tours are currently on hold, we look forward to implementing a full touring calendar for junior and senior students in the near future.
