The Boat Club, founded in 1847 is just 3-4minutes walk from school and is situated on the banks of the River Wear, overlooked by Durham Cathedral. The club houses a fleet of boats including singles, doubles, quads and eights. The school also has a land based training facility with indoor rowing ergometers and strength and conditioning equipment.
Rowing is offered to all pupils in the Senior School at an appropriate level for their physiological development. Rowing scholarships are offered to candidates with exceptional potential and a drive to succeed at 16+.
Pupils from the school have gone on to represent Great Britain at Junior, University and Senior World Championships, Commonwealth and Olympic Regattas. In the last few seasons crews from the school have raced at the Mens and Womens Head of the River Races in London, won medals at the Schools Head, the National Schools Regatta and National Championships. Pupils have also gained GB selection for the Junior World Championships and Coupe de la Jeunesse in addition to representing England at the Home Countries regatta.
Coaches are staff, parents and rowers in their own right, with British Rowing coaching qualifications, International rowing and coaching experience.
All rowing enquiries should be directed towards the Head of Rowing, Mrs Harris, firstname.lastname@example.org

The pupils are spoilt for choice. There are not enough hours in the day for my son to do all the extra-curricular activities that he would like to be involved in. The training and discipline my son has received in sport has been outstanding. His physical fitness has reached new heights. The support of the teachers/coaches is unrivalled."
