Calderdale College and Halifax RLFC are working in partnership to produce the best possible learning experience for local talented Rugby League players.
School leavers have the opportunity to join our ‘Performance Pathway’ programme and study their chosen BTEC Qualification whilst getting quality professional training from Halifax RLFC Captain and Calderdale College ‘Head of Rugby’, Scott Murrell.
The ‘Performance Pathway’ was created to bridge the gap between local amateur rugby league clubs and our first team squad. The grass roots programme opens the door to our academy side, with the aim to develop and guide youth talent in Halifax, to eventually don our famous blue and white colours and represent the town.
Calderdale College’s state of the art facilities at the Inspire Centre will help you achieve an RFL tier 3 accredited qualification, to be able to progress to the professional game whilst becoming qualified in your own choice of subject.

“These are exciting times for both Calderdale College and Halifax RLFC. I think Scott will bring with him a wealth of Rugby League knowledge. In the short time I have known him, his attitude has always been excellent and he’s a very supportive, senior figure with genuine leadership skills.”
-Richard Marshall, Halifax RLFC Head Coach
“The new Rugby Centre of Excellence will offer students a rare opportunity to pursue the dream of becoming a professional rugby player, with first class coaching, whilst continuing with their studies at the College. I hope rugby players in the area will take full advantage of this opportunity and I am looking forward to seeing local junior rugby players’ progress“
-John Rees, Calderdale College Principle
“I'm ecstatic to be involved. It's been a big change for me but I'm confident in using my experience in Rugby League; amateur, semi-professional and full time, to widen the students' skill sets."
-Scott Murrell, Halifax RLFC Captain & Calderdale College Head of Rugby
