The Rowing Academy

Over 100 pupils from across the Federation take part in regular rowing activity

Rowing at Mossbourne is delivered by our full time rowing coach, Mr Wilkinson, who joined the programme in September. Mr Wilkinson has represented Great Britain at 8 World Championships in both Sculling and Sweep disciplines. Mr Wilkinson is assisted by a wide variety of members of staff from across the federation and additional rowing coaches are provided by London Youth Rowing.

Rowing is an important part of the culture of the Mossbourne Federation. We offer talented sports pupils the opportunity to transition from their current school to Mossbourne Community Academy at the start of Year 9 if they demonstrate an exceptional aptitude for the sport of rowing and they wish to pursue this path. The parents/admissions section of this website has further guidance about the rowing application process and there is also an application/statement of interest form that can be accessed.

We can also provide guidance and advice for pupils currently in Year 11 who wish to apply for the Mossbourne Sixth Form and have previous rowing experience or an existing sporting background with physical characteristics suitable for exceptional rowing performance.
