Sporting Achievements

We have a strong record against other schools. We regularly progress to the latter stages of national competitions in hockey and rugby, winning the U18 Schools Plate in 2019, and have enjoyed particular success in country sports including equestrian competitions and clay pigeon shooting, for which we have won the National Clay Pigeon title.

We are proud of the sporting success of our pupils, including the talented sportsmen and women who have achieved success after leaving Bloxham. Many of our pupils represent the school at county level or higher.
