One of those new venues is Spratton Hall, just to the north of Northampton. Spratton Hall is the latest school to sign up not just to host a Monarch Rugby Academy but to also have all of its rugby provision supplied by the Saints' Community department, which coaches the school's youngsters every weekday afternoon.
The school will also receive coach education sessions for the school's teachers, ensuring an all-round service for staff and students alike.
Set in 50 acres of rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Spratton Hall has been offering top class education to youngsters aged between 4 and 13 for over 50 years. Centred around a Grade II listed Georgian manor house, Spratton Hall has recently completed a five-year building programme and now has state-of-the-art facilities, including half a dozen perfect rugby pitches.

Spratton Hall School will be hosting its first Monarch Rugby Academy between October 23rd and 25th.
Other venues this coming half-term include Great Houghton School (October 22nd-24th) Franklin's Gardens, Stamford Junior School and Newmarket RFC (all October 20th-November 1st).
The Northampton Saints Monarch Rugby Academies are designed for players of all abilities between the ages of 7 and 16.
The camps offer an exciting opportunity for all young rugby players to enjoy some fun, skills, drills and competitions, including the Kick, Pass, Run Challenge which all participants will test themselves on.
Coaching is led by Northampton Saints community coaches along with a selection of Saints first team squad and Academy players, when available.
Over 2,000 youngsters have attended Monarch Rugby Academies across the east of England in the last 12 months, with many of the aspiring rugby players hoping to emulate the likes of Tom Stephenson, Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, Danny Herriott, Jamie Warr and Tom Collins into the Saints Academy system and ultimately becoming full-time professionals.
