National Vase competition

14 February 2020
National Vase competition

Rugby at Sutton Valence School continues to go from strength to strength and, this year, the 1st XV has reached new heights by progressing to the Semi-Final of the NatWest U18 National Vase competition. Playing in the latter stages of such a prestigious competition is a significant accomplishment and we invite the School community to come along on Sunday 8th March to support the team as they take on Wellington School (Taunton) for a place in the final at Twickenham. The match is due to start at 1.00pm on Stoney.

Given the overwhelming interest in attending this fixture, we are requesting that attendees register to indicate whether they would like to attend the pre-match lunch in the Refectory at 12.00pm and/or the post-match tea, also in the Refectory. There is no cost associated with either, but it will help our catering provision to have an advanced idea of numbers. Please book at
