    “The PSA team were fantastic from the minute we arrived in Tignes. Their help and support throughout our week was superb, I did not expect my group to be looked after so well. The programme was excellent and the facilities in Tignes were first class. All in all, Tignes provided everything we wanted and more….. we will definitely be coming back.”

    Paul Burke, Director of Rugby, Epsom College

    “The PSA Academies Tour that the OURFC Blues participated in as part of our pre-season schedule was both immensely enjoyable and excellent preparation for this year’s Varsity match. Overall, our experience was very positive and, on reflection, it is a week that has, undoubtedly, created moments and memories that will be cherished by me and my whole squad for a very long time.”

    Fergus Taylor, Oxford University RFC Blues Captain

    “Our trip to Tignes with PSA Academies was the best tour we’ve been on. From start to finish, the service was top class, with the venue & facilities excellent. We’d highly recommend the whole experience and plan to travel again with PSA Academies.”

    Matt Jarvis, Director of Rugby, The King’s Hospital School

    “Not only have PSA Academies the best rugby coaching programme and staff, their trip offers a truly transformative, holistic experience for students and school staff alike. An unforgettable experience, that we highly recommend.”

    Maeve Hackett, Director of Rugby, St. Joseph’s CBS Drogheda
