Clay Pigeon Shooting at Bloxham School
Clay Pigeon Shooting is a very popular activity amongst Bloxham School students, open to both boys and girls.
Bloxham has an impressive track record in competitions and with the A Team crowned National Champions in both 2012 and 2013, and finishing second in 2014. Meanwhile, our B Team were National Champions within their group in 2014. Both teams finished third in their respective groups in 2015. They have been previous winners at The Oxford Challenge, Warwick Challenge and Bredon School events.
Clay Pigeon Shooting sessions take place at Edgehill Shooting Ground between 4.00pm and 6.00pm on Tuesdays.
The coaches are experts within the sport, one of whom currently captains and represents the England team. There is no need for students to own their own gun as the school own 12 and 20 bore guns (three of which are Browning Guns that the team have won in the last three years). All standards are welcome to attend the activity - tuition is given to all, beginners through to experienced students. The Bloxham School team take part in competitions, giving students the opportunity to represent their school.
The cost is £27.50 per session, which includes tuition, cartridges and clays (parental permission is needed). The sessions take place from September until the October Half Term and then resume again in February for the rest of the school year.
