For the second year in a row Hele’s golf team have reached the national final at Woodhall Spa Golf Club the home of England Golf. Dominic, James and Will beat 28 other schools across the county with a combined stableford score of 80pts at Boringdon Golf Club. Dominic also won the individual competition with an incredible 1 under par score of 72.

The golf programme started about 18months ago and has gone from strength to strength. We are now on the second group of our ‘this  girl golfs’ programme funded by England Golf and have 30 boys also in the programme having regular coaching with the Boringdon Park Golf’s PGA professionals Ian Marshall, Scott Macaskill and Jez Wilmott.

Last summer we had over 300 students take free taster sessions at the school and from there students were invited to get involved in further coaching at Boringdon Golf Club. We aim to do the same this summer. Three members of staff have recently taken their level 1 PGA coaching qualification at China Fleet and The Belfry to further their knowledge and understanding of how we can teach it in the curriculum.

More and more girls and boys are coming forward to be a part of the golf programme and many are now involved in the Boringdon Jnr Golf Academy.
