Since the 1996, when the rugby team toured South Africa, senior students at Rishworth have had the opportunity to play sport overseas.
In 1998 thirty four boys toured the Southern hemisphere and 2000 saw a three-week visit to Canada.
2001 saw both hockey and netball teams travel to Barbados and in the summer of 2002 the boys toured Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
In 2004 we visited South Africa on our first overseas combined tour winning all but one of 16 hockey and rugby matches.
In 2006 over 80 students toured South America playing in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay.
2008 saw four teams going to Australia where they played 20 games and lost only 3.
In 2010 the School hosted a touring hockey team from Chile whilst in 2012 a hockey, netball and rugby tour to Sri Lanka proved hugely successful.
In 2015 we visited Canada and USA and South Africa in 2018.
Due to Covid we were unable to tour Thailand and Malaysia last year as planned.
We remain optimistic that we should be able to tour again soon.
