The national media will be descending on Bruntcliffe School this afternoon as the official launch for the new England rugby kit takes place.
Coach Stuart Lancaster and members of both the men’s and women’s elite player squads will be at the school to reveal the new kits in an event set to be televisised live on Sky Sports from 2pm.
Pupils Anna Wilby, Demi Nicholls, Lizzy Priestley, Lauren Griffiths, Sienna Henry-Fisher and Olivia Wake won the launch as a prize after producing a video for a competition on the RFU website as part of its All Schools programme, which Bruntcliffe has been part of since 2012.
Bruntcliffe head Heather Scott said: “I’m delighted that our girls’ hard work and ingenuity creating such an eye-catching presentation has paid off, and that we will be the English school which has the honour of hosting the launch of the new England rugby kit.
“We just can’t wait to see the England players wearing the new strip on our stage!”
