Rowing at Surbiton is a very popular sport and goes from strength to strength, with the School acquiring its own boathouse facility in October 2013, which provides us with an excellent base to develop rowing at Surbiton.
Rowing is offered as a co-curricular sport. Pupils start rowing in Year 8 on a selective basis and can continue through to the Sixth Form. Rowing takes place seven days a week. We train at the boathouse, in the school gym, and at our indoor rowing facilities at our sports grounds.
The ethos of the Boat Club is for pupils to take responsibility for themselves as an individual athlete and the commitment to club and crew. We expect members of the Boat Club to help develop the club ethos and foster an environment that is fun and enjoyable, while nurturing and cultivating personal ambition across all levels of a great team sport.
The Boat Club competes at local and national level. Events are entered that suit the requirements of the age group's ability. We have success at all levels of rowing, from local events to national events that include National Schools, Henley Royal, Women’s Henley and National Rowing Championships. Surbiton girls have also gone on to represent England and Great Britain.
