Our main focus for competitions is with modern pentathlon-based events, in particular the Schools Biathlon (with separate run and swim). Some children are also keen to develop their shooting and participate in modern triathlon (run, swim and shoot). The current pentathlon programme has well established links with the athletics and swimming squads, enabling pupils to train regularly throughout the week. Pupils also get the chance to learn to shoot, fence and ride ponies.
Staff will ensure a balanced approach which ties in with existing training for the individual disciplines, making full use of the superb facilities and unrivalled coaching.
As well as nurturing existing talent, we are keen to introduce pupils to modern pentathlon sports as it develops fundamental life skills and there is always a great team spirit in training and at competitions.
