All parents and friends of the school are warmly invited to watch the matches we participate in. Peebles High School follows the code of conduct laid down by Scottish Rugby. Players on both sides should be encouraged to do their best at all times. Referees officiate to the best of their abilities and no comment should be made on their performances. We are proud of our strong rugby heritage and the values we look to uphold and maintain. All supporters are therefore asked to help in preserving these traditions.
Season 2013/14 sees Peebles High again named as a Scottish Rugby School of Rugby. Following on from our Gold Award status, since the SRU started its School Champion scheme in 2008, we are now one of 25 State Schools in Scotland who are being challenged to promote and develop the game in Scotland through extra Scottish Rugby and Cash Back for Communities funding. Our target age groups this season will be S1 and S2.
The U15 Squad will tour Barcelona in May 2014 and as per tradition we will host a Canadian Senior school (Brantford Collegiate) in March 2014. The U15s also play in the Tournoi Des Capitales, Paris in September. They will be representing the Borders in this 7's Tournament.
