“We can’t thank Keith Jones, Roger Howard, Adrian Sweeney and the staff at Woodhouse Grove School enough for their support.” – Martin Whitcombe, father of Grovian James Whitcombe, Year 11

James made his England under-16 debut against Wales on Sunday, helping his side land a 41-22 victory – and just like his dad, we are all very proud of him here at The Grove.

Roger Howard, Woodhouse Grove Director of Sport said:

“It is really pleasing to see James’ hard work and application paying off. It is also a real endorsement of the regime and culture at Woodhouse Grove. James has benefited from a knowledgeable and supportive environment – and made the most of it!”
