England U18: Top 10 England U18 International Producing Schools Revealed

Coach Logic

Since 1949 records have been kept of each England U18 team to have played, so we decided to dig into them and see which schools have been represented the most often.

So we decided to look at the Top 10 England U18 producing schools, and it certainly yielded some fascinating results.

As always with such things there were a couple of caveats, as detailed in the video, we have included players selected in England U18 squads in 2020 despite there being no games as a result of Covid, we felt it only fair to the efforts of those players and the schools they represent.

Second, we have included only the schools that players finished their school rugby careers at. While we would love to give due recognition to every school that played its role, the data simply is not there for a huge number of players and we felt it only fair to apply the same rule to all players.

That being said – if a player went to your school prior to the school for whom they were playing whilst in England U18 colours, please to get in touch, we would love to recognise your efforts!

The results are, in our opinion, incredibly interesting – the rise of the AASE/ACE Colleges is clear, the fact that some appear in this Top 10 is incredibly when your consider they have only been contributing since 2008 in most cases. 

Perhaps most startling of all is that a staggering 460 schools have had an England U18 player since 1949, a real demonstration of the reach that schools rugby in England has had over the years.

The top end of the Top 10 features some huge names and some unbelievably high number of representatives, but it’s also worth us pointing out some of those that just missed out before you dive into the Top 10.

Some we mention in the video, but the likes of Whitgift, Exeter College, RGS High Wycombe and Dulwich College only just miss out on the Top 10. Sides such as Cranleigh, Hampton, Northampton School for Boys, and Bedford have been creeping up the list and could easily be just a few years away from a place in the Top 10.

Great sides of past eras such as Cowley Grammar School and Lydney Grammar also came close, as with more recent legends of the school game such as Barnard Castle. The depth of school rugby is astonishing!
