Surbiton High is renowned for its Ski Club, and following its foundation in 1993 the club quickly established itself as the premier school ski club in the UK, producing British Olympic skiers, such as Chemmy Alcott and Darcie Mead.
The club is one of the largest in Britain, with nearly 70 skiers, and encompasses all ages from six to eighteen. Surbiton High School racing teams have stamped their mark on every major ski competition for schools, winning the Regional, English and British Races, both on snow and artificial slopes.
The objective of the Ski Club is to provide any pupil at Surbiton High School with the opportunity to try ski training and racing and to provide a platform from which students are able to develop into good skiers and to introduce our members to the ski racing opportunities available. Our aim is to maintain our dominance on plastic, but also to encourage skiers to join clubs outside School and race on snow. We are one of biggest school ski clubs in Great Britain, with many current pupils as well as past being school international skiers as well as members of the England Team, the Great Britain Squad and the ISF Team.
Students in Years 12 and 13 can train alongside our other elite members at Aldershot after School on either Monday or Thursday.
If a student joins the ski club they may be invited to represent the School at some of the following races:
ESSKIA – Qualifiers - Bromley, Finals – Norwich, British – Pontypool (Plastic)
Surrey Schools – Aldershot (Plastic)
Canada Cup – Jasper (Snow)
British Schoolgirls’ – Flaine (Snow)
Inter-schools – Les Houches (Snow)
We also attend the SRSA and LSERSA summer race series as a ski club and expect members to attend at least three of the twelve races. Information on these races can be found on the following websites:
