Year 11 (J16)

Lead Coach (Boys) – Mr Satchwill :
Lead Coach (Girls) – Mr White :


Our year 11 squad is where we expect our students to develop their time management skills, with help from their squad coach, as their rowing training increases again alongside their academic studies and GCSE exams.

Students are encouraged to work hard throughout the year, including during exam season, as their rowing training offers them the opportunity to relax and reset before going back to their studies. We have found many students enjoy this time as a break and are more efficient with their revision time. Coaches are obviously sympathetic to revision time.

Year 11 students are on a similar programme to seniors at this stage and are regularly considered for senior boats. We would expect them to be competing at the major events throughout the year and looking to establish themselves as strong student-athletes in preparation for senior rowing and the BMS Sixth Form.
