Following the exciting announcement of May 21, in which the Swinton Lions club and the Lions Foundation, in partnership with The Rugby College, launched the Swinton Lions Academy, we would like to thank all the people who have contacted us asking for further information and offering support.

As described in the previous news release, the Swinton Lions Academy will offer students an opportunity to study for formal educational qualifications alongside an enhanced playing and training opportunity from September 2020 onwards.

On the launch of the Academy, the Lions’ Director of Development Damian Ridpath explained, “This is a fantastic opportunity for school leavers both boys and girls who would like to combine an educational package with playing rugby. The club has found the perfect partner in The Rugby College to provide a robust package for young people.

“All students will be supported significantly within the partnership and the Club and Foundation will provide a range of support alongside the education and playing offer to make this offer unique.”

Please see attached below an application form on which prospective students may wish to apply to join our Academy for the forthcoming academic year starting in September 2020. If anyone would like further information please do not hesitate to contact either, Neil Hayden at neil.hayden@therugbycollege.co.uk or Lions Director of Development, [email protected].
