Cranbrook School - Respect Aspire Achieve

In the spotlight: Ruaridh McConnochie

Ruaridh McConnochie was considered one of the nicest guys ever to have attended Cranbrook in the opinion of his tutor and rugby coach.

Ruaridh boarded at Rammell House and was regarded as a diligent, responsible and totally selfless student. He was a stalwart of every house sports team. He represented the 1st XV for two years on the wing and was captain of the Senior 7s squad.

Having represented Kent and enjoyed his rugby playing/coaching gap year in New Zealand, he gained further formative rugby experiences by playing for Team GB in the Rio Olympics in 2016 where they won silver. His successes at Bath Rugby and thence England since then have surprised no-one who knew of his abundant talents earlier on in his career. Not surprisingly, he is admired by rugby-playing students of the current generation of the school, not least because of his coaching visits to the school which have motivated the next generation of top players.

Continuing the family connection admirably, his brother Jamie currently coaches the school’s 1st XV.

"As we recover from the lockdown blues, we will each need time and space. We must not neglect this need. As we attempt to rebuild and reconnect, this will need energy and careful consideration, and we must provide space for this." #reflections today: https://t.co/Slq8T6Wwo2
