Head coach Alan Solomons has rewarded back-row forward Hamish Watson - who is yet to make his debut - hooker George Turner, who has made 17 appearances, and 20-year-old wing Jamie Farndale.
All three are currently part of the club's elite development pool.
Solomons said: "At loose-forward, Hamish is a terrific young talent.
"He hasn't had a lot of opportunities this year but he will make his mark next year, I have no doubt about that. He has a lot of promise.
"George Turner is a really promising young hooker.
"He is a dynamic, explosive player and I think this new contract and increased exposure is going to make a huge difference to him. I expect him to grow as a player in leaps and bounds.
"Jamie is another fine athlete who joins our senior squad."
