The school is also pleased to announce its new sponsor, local restaurant Frankie & Benny's at Queens Links Leisure Park who are committed to supporting the ongoing success and development of rugby at the school.

Rugby is offered as part of the curriculum; teams are run at S1, S2, U15, U16 and Senior Boys; and the school is trying to establish a new girls training squad.  Last season the school entered teams in the Brewin Dolphin Schools Cup tournaments, winning the boys U18 Bowl competition. .

Helen Innes, Aberdeen Grammar School’s Deputy Head Teacher said “Last season’s Brewin Dolphin Schools U18 Bowl win in the Scottish Schools Competition was a tremendous triumph for Aberdeen Grammar School and will hopefully show the younger rugby players coming through the lower years what can be achieved.

"As we look forward to the new season and the new coaching set up at Aberdeen Grammar School we will hopefully see that this achievement can be emulated by our other rugby teams.”
