At the core of the club is the focus on the individual, the responsibility they hold to themselves, the club and the crew. The coaching team strive to support each individual to make the most of every opportunity available to them.

The School competes successfully at many races throughout the year, including ‘The Schools Head’, ‘National Schools Regatta’ and the prestigious ‘Henley Royal Regatta’. A healthy percentage of pupils go on to row for their universities and several to compete internationally.

Below are links to each of the competitions this term. Parents are encouraged to visit and support the crews. Further details of locations and timetables are found on the regatta websites.
