Rowing is a growing sport at Gordon’s School and Gordon's Boat Club has been approved to be affiliated with British Rowing, the National Governing Body for the sport.

This year we are aiming to enter a team into a number of events after training throughout the Autumn and Spring terms.

“Earn your medals in the winter, collect them in the summer.”

The squad is coached by three times Olympian cox and former GB national and Olympic coach Alan Inns, to be technically proficient and physically fit. Sessions take place on the water; in the rowing tank; on the rowing machine; and in the gym.

Olympic Gold medallist George Nash MBE officially opened No 9 the school's new ergo centre. 

“If you train hard, you'll not only be hard, you'll be hard to beat.”

Head of Rowing: Maddie Shoolbread -
