Bristol schools to debut new rugby shirts at Twickenham
THREE Bristol Schools will soon have cause to wear their school team rugby shirt with extra pride on the pitch - as they will have designed it themselves.
Canterbury, England Rugby’s official kit supplier, has teamed up with the Rugby Football Union to give secondary state schools the chance to design their team’s rugby shirt.
Henbury School, Kings Oak Academy in Kingswood and the Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe were selected amongst 100 schools invited to attend Canterbury kit design workshops held across the UK last year.
At the workshops the pupils got to learn about the core values of rugby, the pride associated with the shirt and the importance of colours, logos and emblems, before going on to create their own design.

The drawings were then taken and turned into final bespoke designs which will be produced and supplied to the schools.
All 100 of the unique rugby shirts are to be revealed when they are presented to the schools at Twickenham on Sunday.
One lucky representative from each school will get to wear their school’s specially designed rugby shirt with pride on the pitch ahead of the RBS 6 Nations England v Italy game, and also again at half time.
Chris Stephenson, chief executive of Canterbury, said: “The kit design workshops were incredible, the pupils were creative, imaginative and keen to understand and learn about the values of rugby and the thought process behind a shirt design.”
