Con­tin­ued from back

David, pic­tured left, who has now com­pleted his first year since join­ing the school in Jan­uary 2014, was the deputy head of a Cheshire school be­fore tak­ing a head­ship at a lead­ing prepara­tory school in York­shire, where he was in of­fice for five years.

Now back in Cheshire, he has re­newed his con­tacts with nearby Wilm­slow Rugby Club and Sale Sharks and this has given pupils an amaz­ing start in learn­ing the game.

Over the first year the Car­rwood Road school’s re­sults have been be­yond his ex­pec­ta­tions.

David re­calls the first tour­na­ment in which teams were en­tered.

“We were play­ing against other schools who had been play­ing rugby for sev­eral years and yet we were able to com­pete,” he said.

“We won some matches and con­ducted our­selves ad­mirably in the way that only rugby re­quires you to do in the face of such phys­i­cal­ity.

“We were also the best kit­ted-out squads and we are very grate­ful to Sav­ills for their gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship in pro­vid­ing our team kit.”
