With the prep school rugby festival taking place it was a chance for one of our year 12 students who takes a real interest in refereeing to gain valuable experience. Max is currently taking his badges and while he is a good player, has started taking his refereeing seriously. He refereed during the festival and is also lined up to referee some of our junior games this season. Last year Max took refereeing as part of his GCSE PE course and watching him referee his peers was a difficult experience but one that he gained the utmost respect from them. We are keen to support Max in his development and he certainly is showing signs that he wants to take this further.
