It is always lovely to welcome touring sides from south of the border to Cargilfield, and on Saturday we were visited by St Hugh’s, a prep school from Lincolnshire. On what was a very, very wet and dreich morning, it was a very one sided game of rugby to be honest, although credit to St Hugh’s who never once gave up and kept going right to the end. However, the rugby we played was quite exceptional given the conditions, with some superb handling, the ball moving down the line with real pace and power, whilst the forwards once again dominated the breakdown and so starved St Hugh’s of the ball, which allowed us to score a lot of very well worked tries. I have a job thinking of a dropped ball if truth be told, and that says something about the concentration and skill level of this group of boys. Yes, there will be sterner tests to come, but to be so relentless, in such atrocious conditions, says a lot. Well played indeed!
Special mention to Harry for his piping before the start of the game: it is always a highlight for visitors south of the border, and today it was no different!
We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.
We have places available for 2020 entry in most year groups.
For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.
