Unfortunately the Ergo Championships was cancelled due to the snow! The M40 was closed which would mean that those local to Oxford who have an unfair advantage. A real pity as the scores recorded in the lead up to the event from the Novice, J13 and J14 groups were excellent!

On Saturday 4th February, the J14 squad and upwards competed at Hampton Four’s and Eight’s Head. As a first event since Christmas, it was a great opportunity to test how effective the winter training has been. More importantly, it was an opportunity to have fun away from the sometimes monotonous winter programme.

Charlie Cobb was selected to attend the Junior GB training camp which took place in Nantes, France. This selected took place after the Early ID trials, in November. She joined  7 other sweep girls, 12 sculling girls and the boys squad for what was to be a tough camp.

The Early ID GB trials is the first opportunity for would-be GB athletes to make their mark to those who will eventually select crews for the Junior World Championships and Coupe de la Jeunesse teams. This year the World Junior Championships will be held in Plovdiv: Bulgaria, while the Coupe will be held in Banyoles: Spain.

On Saturday 5th November, 5 Headington crews travelled down to London to race the 5km stretch on the Tideway. All crews had a great race, the top senior quad came 2nd in their section with the 2nd senior quad only 10 places behind.

Pangbourne Small Boats Head is traditionally an excellent Autumn event for the Juniors. This year the Fours Head took place on the same day as Pangbourne so the Seniors were unable to compete or support this local event.

Little stream, overcast conditions and a following tail wind made for good conditions with some fast times being posted on the day.

This year 6 girls were invited to attend the World Potential camp at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham, however only 3 girls (Charlie, Tess and Franny) could attend as there was a trip to Russia for the other 3 rowers.

Headington School Boat Club started the year’s training off a couple of days before the start of term. The club has seen a great start to the year, with an amazing number of novices joining and the total number of Headington rowers reaching an all-time high.


A fantastic part of Headington School life. My daughter loves being part of the rowing team and she is supported by such dedicated and enthusiastic coaches.
