Opportunities for Talented Athletes
Although we are a relatively small school, we achieve extremely highly in the sporting arena, regularly winning school tournaments in our main sports. Many of our talented pupils play for local academy squads with others having been selected for county or even national teams. Because our coaches and teachers know each child individually, we are quick to spot potential and positive character attributes, giving our pupils every opportunity to develop and grow their strengths and ability.
We have a high number of gifted and talented rugby players here at Shebbear and as such we have developed strong links with Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club and Brunel University, with opportunities available each year for our pupils to gain scholarships to study at Brunel University and join the Ealing Academy.
We also work closely with the England Lambs, Saracens RFC and Exeter Chiefs and run exchange programmes for our sportsmen and women with schools in Australia and South Africa as well as regular sports tours.
