On the first Sunday of the autumn term the sun shone on the 12th South Coast Kings' Rugby Tournament. This encouraged the teams to play expansive rugby in excellent conditions; a challenge they all rose to. In the U15 tournament Dean Close School from Cheltenham met Hampton School in the trophy final. The former battled their way to a 10-7 victory to take the trophy to Gloucestershire. In the shield final, a strong Halliford side beat KES.
Hampton School reached the final in the U18 tournament as well, and this time they emerged victorious beating Whitchurch High School from Cardiff. KES reached the final of the shield and in this they managed to overcome Downside School. It was the first time the host team had won a trophy at this festival for some years and the home crowd were suitably delighted.Thanks to all staff and school who attended and to Mr Powell and Dr Green for their organisation of the event.
