The School has enjoyed great success on the rugby field in recent years both locally and regionally at all age groups. The boys have also taken part in local charity matches.
Paul Hull (ex-England / Bristol and England Saxons coach) heads rugby across all Schools, coaching the 1st XV, U9s, U8s and Pre-Prep with John Sutherland (Director of Sport). We also have the expertise of Greg Baber-Williams, who is Head of Rugby at DCS and who also coaches Gloucestershire county teams. Both Paul and Greg work closely with all members of the games staff in providing expert coaching to all pupils.
Paul Hull played full back for Bristol and England and then moved on to coach the Bristol Academy, Bristol and the England Saxons. He is a Level 5 coach and is relishing the new challenge of improving rugby at Dean Close at all levels. Part of his new role will be to work with all the school coaches, as well as school teams, and also to work with individual players to help them maximise their potential and perhaps follow their dream to become national rugby players themselves.
