London Skolars were founded during the Centenary Season of the Rugby Football League in 1995. Initially created for post-university graduates in London, the club quickly became one open to all, reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of Rugby League in the English capital.
After achieving initial success within the London League, the club became one of the founding members of the Southern Conference (1997). The club also demonstrated a commitment to developing the game during its amateur period, being one of the few amateur clubs to employ their own development officers. Seven of its juniors have already played Super League. In 2002 the club’s application to join the National Leagues was accepted. The first team currently plays in Betfred League 1 and is challenging to gain promotion to the Championship.
