Cranmore School is one of the very few schools, that offers pupils starting in prep in year 5, as well as seniors, the opportunity to row as a main sport or as an extra-curricular activity.
Training takes place either: on-site, in our own fully-equipped fitness room with 6 ergo-meters and sculling boat in the swimming pool; or at the shared facilities with Walton Rowing Club in Walton-on-Thames, with its boathouse, fleet of over 40 boats and our own fleet of 6 boats.
Pupils have the opportunity to attend rowing events, trips and courses including the summer rowing course, the Belgium Ghent International Junior Regatta and picnic at Henley Royal Regatta. In Years 7 and 8, many pupils compete at local regattas with some going on to compete successfully at National and International level after leaving school.
