Rugby is offered to all students, throughout all years at Wilson's. Within the winter and spring term, pupils will have the opportunity to train once a week as well as competing in regular fixtures during the year.

During training and games, the boys will cover the basic laws of the game as well as focusing on skill development and tactical awareness. At the start of year 7 the boys will be introduced to the contact element of the game, where safety and confidence is central to the sessions that are delivered. At Wilson's we try to get as many boys playing with a smile on their face as possible, aiming to match the England Rugby Football Union's core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.

Each year group has one Rugby team, run by our specialist Rugby PE teacher, Mr Kimmins. Wilson's Rugby regularly competes in league and cup fixtures to a high standard, and continually promotes sporting excellence at Wilson's School.

Wilson's competes against a host of local schools, including The Cedars, Whitgift, Boxhill and Dunnotar. Additionally, in years 9-13 the students are offered weekly strength and conditioning sessions in the Fitness suite. The aim of these sessions is to increase the boy's mobility, cardiovascular fitness and functional strength as well as focusing on pre/rehabilitation. In the spring the teams often participate in sevens tournaments. Wilson's has produced a number of Surrey players in last few years, and has close contact with local clubs such as Sutton & Epsom and Warlingham.
