Rowing at the King's School
Founded in 1887, The King's School Rowing Club has been training young rowers to success and has an enviable reputation as one of the country's top school clubs.The club is based on key principles which aim to enable excellence from both its individual athletes and its competing crews.
All members are expected to help build and create an environment of trust and respect. High standards, open communication and academic excellence are expected from all pupils, whether competing on the international or on the regional circuit.
At the core of the club is the focus on the individual, the responsibility they hold to themselves, the club and the crew. The coaching team strive to support each individual to make the most of every opportunity available to them.
Our boathouse is situated in the centre of Chester on the River Dee, and its excellent facilities are enhanced by experienced and professional coaching. Rowing is offered as part of the sports curriculum in the third year, and forms part of the curriculum from then on for those who wish to participate.
The King's rowers often compete in the top levels of school's competitions, and we have had many rowers go to Oxford and in particular Cambridge to join their excellent rowing traditions. We boast many ex-Boat-Race crew members in our Old King's Scholars, alongside National and Olympic squad members.
