Welcome to Headington School Oxford Boat Club
Rowing was first introduced at Headington School in 1991. Since then the boat club has grown to include all years in the school and has become one of the largest and most competitive clubs at Headington and one of the top school boat clubs in the United Kingdom. Over the last ten years, Headington rowers have won numerous medals at the National Schools' Regatta and at Henley Women's Regatta, as well as seeing an average of three athletes per year represent Great Britain at U16 and U18 level.
The reason for Headington’s success over the years is our training ethos which relies on fun, teamwork and the commitment of those who participate in the boat club. Most of all, enjoyment of the sport is encouraged by our coaches as an essential element in success. Rowing at Headington is delivered by ten Rowing staff who deliver a programme proven to produce well rounded and dedicated young athletes. As a school boat club HSOBC takes the academic performance of our athletes very seriously and we are very proud of the incredibly high standard that our rowers set every year in both their internal and public exams.
