Equestrian Club

 

Uppingham Community College is one of very few state schools to run an Equestrian Club.  It competes regularly against the top private schools from across the country across in the National Equestrian Schools Association (NSEA) events as well as attending many local competitions.

We rely heavily on parent support for this club to work as the College does not have a designated member of staff with equestrian experience or qualifications.

Mr Lewin offers the club administration support in terms of the following:

  • Registering students with the NSEA.
  • Promoting upcoming events/competitions.
  • Meeting with individual students and captains to put together teams for events.
  • Coordinate entries and arrange fees where relevant.
  • Promote any Club success within the College and local press. 

 

Last year was an incredible year for the Club as it has reached three National Finals and produced a National Champion.

All the girls involved and just as importantly their parents put in a tremendous amount of time and energy into their sport.  Every single day they give up their time and many of their weekends are spent travelling across the country competing for the College.  We are tremendously proud of their achievements and were delighted when they won an award at the Rutland School Sports Awards in July.
