Partnerships with schools

Beechen Cliff School, Bath

Since 1995 Beechen Cliff School ( and Minerva Bath rowing club join forces every year and offer rowing as an additional activity for pupils after school. Courses start every spring and take place after school once a week. At the end of the learn to row course juniors are able to row in a single scull.

Many of the pupils from Beechen Cliff join our lively junior squad at the end of the learn to row course, training regularly at weekends and during the week and taking part in regattas.

Since the partnership started more than 200 pupils have taken part in the scheme and learned to row. All juniors were coached by our Club President Arnold Cooke, who was BANES Coach of the Year and are now coached by ex men’s captain Mike Glanville.

We also have courses run regularly with other school partnerships including Hayesfield School, Millfield school and St Mary’s Calne. Please contact us if you would like to discuss courses and access for your school.
