RYA BRITISH YOUTH SAILING CLUBS
The School has been operating for a number of years as a Royal Yachting Associating (RYA) Training Centre and, in 2018, we were delighted to become an RYA British Youth Sailing Recognised Club, one of only 15 clubs nationwide and the only school in the UK to hold this accreditation.
CANOEING & KAYAKING
Canoeing and kayaking are popular after-school activities for all year groups. In the warmer months, we run a variety of different sessions from our Watersports Centre, Hodge Howe, coaching complete beginners through to more experienced paddlers.
Pupils may join us as experienced sailors or arrive as novices, and they will receive equally dedicated support to allow them to reach their potential. We encourage pupils to join as early as possible as many of our highest achieving sailors joined us at the beginning of their School life, at Elleray campus. We are very proud of this achievement.
We have a number of boats used for sail training to suit experience and size, while our mixed team of boys and girls race in Tera and Feva dinghies.
Students in Year 7 to 9 enjoy windsurfing as a part of their timetabled Adventure programme. Those students in Years 10 to 13 who wish to Windsurf can take it as an after-school activity and advance to the higher stages of the RYA syllabus, from beginner to future instructors.
