Students attend Canterbury Kit Design Workshop

Four students from Y10 (Imogen Bearder, Kenny Bearton, Ryan Hadley and Shevaun Levell) attended a kit design workshop by Canterbury to design the academy’s new ‘All Schools’ rugby kit. The workshop was held on the 27th September at Lincoln RFC. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to put their creative skills to test and have their say over what kit the students will wear in the future.

The All Schools programme was launched in 2012 by the Rugby Football Union (RFU) in conjunction with the Rugby Football Foundation (RFF) in an effort to encourage secondary school-children to get involved with the sport both at school and at local club level.

Canterbury, the official kit supplier to England Rugby and All Schools partner, ran the workshop in which ten other schools within the region participated and competed against each other for the best design. The students were walked through the design process by an experienced Canterbury designer. We were delighted with the performance of our students which resulted in their design winning. In recognition of this they were presented with a Canterbury kit bag.

The shirt created by the pupils is now being professionally produced by Canterbury and twenty shirts will be supplied to the David Nieper Academy. In addition to this there is a further opportunity for one pupil from the academy to be part of a pre-match ceremony on the field at Twickenham, where they will be presented with their custom shirt prior to an RBS 6 Nations game next year.

Check out the final design!
