Northampton Saints Foundation invites you to explore the history behind Northampton Saints through assemblies, active sessions, presentations and stadium tours.
We believe remembering the individuals who have brought the club to where it is today is vital to the community as well as the club. Alongside our club historians we are proud to share this information and the key facts and findings from our research through a variety of fun and educational sessions, with strong links to curriculum themes.
Learn about Edgar Mobbs, who formed the Mobbs’ Own and fought in the First World War, hear how the club came to discover, Frank Anderson the club’s first mixed raced player and the story of Jim Baker, the Saints first captain.
In order to support your curriculum delivery, we will endeavour to build a package to suit your needs.
Example Mobbs’ Own day
During their day, students will take part in a rugby session with the club’s community coaches. Following this, dependent on location, there will be a stadium tour that will incorporate the history of the Northampton Saints.
Alternatively, students will be involved in an interactive session where they will explore building the timeline of the life of Edgar Mobbs. The day will finish with a team challenge, where students will discover the trail Edgar Mobbs and the Men of ‘D’ company took on their route to the role they played in the First World War.
To further support your curriculum, we can deliver Tackling Heritage, a five week programme programme consisting of one hour theory and a one hour practical rugby session each week.
