Clay Pigeon Shooting at Bloxham School
Clay Pigeon Shooting is a growing part of the Broader Curriculum programme that has been extremely successful in both participation and success for a number of years, open to both boys and girls.
Bloxham has an impressive track record in competitions and their achievement in winning four out of five classes at the National Schools Clay Pigeon Shooting Championships, in May 2017, is unprecedented. We then retained our win in 2018 and 2019.
All pupils have expert coaching which is headed by A Team coach Arnie Palmer (England Shot & National team coach), Andy Bennett who coaches the B Team along with Tim Spencer and his team of shooting coaches at Edgehill Shooting Ground. 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.
Clay Pigeon Shooting sessions take place at Edgehill Shooting Ground between 4.00pm and 6.00pm on Tuesdays.
The cost is £35.00 per session, which includes tuition, cartridges, clays and use of guns (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.
