Students are trying hard as they seek to improve improving their rugby skills.
Under the watchful eye of qualified coach Simon Finnan, from Burnley Rugby Club, the pupils are practising the techniques they will need to make their way in the fifteen-a-side game.
Tackling, rucking and passing are on the agenda as many of the boys take part in rugby union for the first time.
And sports teacher Mr Nicholson is delighted with their progress.
He said: “Mr Finnan is giving a great grounding in the game. Some of our boys are showing real progress.”
The sessions will continue in the coming weeks with a game against another local school on the agenda.
