The Natwest Schools Cup (previously known as The Daily Mail Cup) is the annual English schools' rugby union cup competition. The semi-finals are now held at Allianz Park, the home ground of rugby union Premiership side Saracens having in previous years been held at Broadstreet Rugby Club. The final is held at Twickenham Stadium. Competitions are held at the U18 and U15 age group levels. At each age group there are two competitions, a Cup for the all schools who enter and a Vase for schools knocked out in the early rounds.

In total, 515 sides entered the U18 cup, and 544 teams participated in the U15 cup. It is sponsored by the Natwest with all the fixtures and results appearing via the RFU website and match reports posted on www.rfu.com.
