Dan Scarbrough back at Bradford Grammar School
Former England international Dan Scarbrough is returning to Bradford Grammar School as a rugby coach and a teacher.
The 35-year-old, who was a pupil there until 1994 and played rugby for the school, will start his new role on August 1.
Scarbrough will be moving back to Yorkshire following a player-coach role at Lille Metropole Rugby Club in northern France, where he has also played for Racing Metro.
He played seven times for England, including full internationals against Wales in 2003, when England won the Six Nations, and South Africa in 2007.
Scarbrough, whose brother Ben has played for Bradford Salem, has also appeared for England A, lifting the Churchill Cup with them, England Sevens, and a World XV against the Pacific Barbarians.
Scarbrough, whose club rugby came with Wakefield, Leeds Tykes and Saracens before he went to France, has also represented Yorkshire at under-19, under-21 and senior level, as well as North of England under-21s.
He was also in the English Premiership Dream Team in 2002 and has held coaching masterclasses while he was at Saracens.
Scarbrough said: “I have experienced rugby at the highest level and am very keen to help enrich the future of the game through my experiences.
“I am passionate about developing people inside and outside of sport, which is what drives me towards a career in teaching.”
Headmaster Kevin Riley said: “I am delighted Dan is returning to Bradford Grammar School. His experience as a player and a coach will be of huge benefit to our rugby.”
The school’s director of sport Charles Lines added: “It is a very exciting prospect to have Dan returning and I am sure his expertise will be of great benefit to the school’s rugby.
“I am much looking forward to working with him and learning from a professional who is just leaving the game.”
