In partnership with Harlequins RFC, who support the school by providing a full time rugby coach, rugby is one of the focus sports at EBC. Rugby teams in each year group play a full programme of fixtures. The Year 9 team, pictured below, is a competitive force in the Surrey School's League, as are the Year 7 & Year 8 teams. A number of players also play for local rugby clubs and there are two Ernest Bevin Players in the Surrey Development Squads, one in the Surrey School of Rugby and six in the Satellite School of Rugby.

Rugby is the first sport module in PE lessons for Year 7 and students who show potential are given extra training sessions run by Tom Williams, the Harlequins coach. Training sessions are held at Fishponds playing fields, close to the school. Year 7 and 8 train on a Tuesday evening, Year 9 on a Thursday evening and Years 11&12 on a Monday evening.
