An annual rugby festival featuring teams from across the UK has returned to Langley School.

Since 2013, the south Norfolk school has hosted the national rugby tournament on the first weekend of the Michaelmas half-term.

A number of schools made the trip to Norfolk for the event, including Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh, RGS Newcastle, and Dulwich College.

Headmaster Jon Perriss said: "It was such a delight to host such an impressive line-up of schools and have so many people come and support.

"The standard of rugby was exceptional, with both players and coaches enjoying playing schools from different parts of the country.

"My thanks to the Langley staff for their tireless efforts and we look forward to the 2022 event already."

After the two days of rugby under the October sun, Wellington College emerged as eventual winners, beating last year's champions Brighton College.
