Exciting New School Resources created in partnership with Sporting Heritage!

The World Rugby Museum is excited to announce the launch of an extended range of School of Ruck online learning resources as part of a new education partnership with Sporting Heritage.

Sporting Heritage, a not-for-profit community interest company working to support learning about sporting heritage collections across the UK, and the World Rugby Museum have been working together to develop a new suite of resources which focus on the history of the women's game and the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2021 (playing in 2022).

The innovative online resources include lesson materials, videos, and an audio-visual history narrated by world authority Dr Lydia Furse. They are accompanied by a teacher's guide, to support flexible use by schools, and are designed to engage young people across all key stages with the Rugby Values. The World Rugby Museum and Sporting Heritage are particularly grateful to Worcester Warriors Women and Premiership Rugby stars Cara Brincat and Carys Cox for sharing their stories as an inspiration to other young women wanting to take up the game!

Moving forward, the World Rugby Museum and Sporting Heritage will now look to further extend this partnership as part of a shared education strategy designed to inspire more young people to develop a love of the game, and understand the wider application of Rugby Values to their learning. Both now look forward to presenting this vision, and the new materials, at Sporting Heritage's Annual Online conference on 21 October 2021.
