outdoor learning

Commando Rugby School is unique in its delivery as it is one of the only programmes across the country that is committed to spreading the Commando Spirit and rugby ethos to school-aged children and young people. We have developed unique methods of training that combine military and rugby skills/values into one comprehensive programme for schools.

The commando element brings active tasks which focus on building resilience, respecting each other, team building and problem-solving. We also implement structured rugby training sessions and can offer your students either one-to-one coaching or team activities. Within these, we work to develop passing, agility, ball transition, handling, kicking and more!

We offer our programme to both Primary and Secondary Schools and can either work with your school to meet specific learning objectives or offer a tailored experience that aims to develop pupils team building skills, leadership skills and resilience.


As skilled sportsmen, coaches and military personnel we can train even the most reluctant participants, and with a focus on progress we will differentiate, adapt and cater to each pupil’s needs, ensuring they get the most from our programme.


We are flexible to cater to your school’s needs and requirements. We can deliver more of a team-building/military focus, rugby focus or both. We can attend for full days or half days and are available for single sessions or more regular sessions, as required.

At Larkholme we were delighted to welcome Dave from Commando Rugby School in for many days of outdoor learning sessions. The whole school thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the outdoor sessions and developed a number of skills including team building, resilience and self belief. Dave was fantastic with the children and encouraged them to push their boundaries and to try new things. All of the experiences provided for the children were very well planned and executed and the children received the most incredible learning days. We are very much looking forward to Dave visiting our school again later in the year and would highly recommend booking Commando Rugby School.
