Fencing Showcase

Our fencers showcased their talents to their peers this week following their successes at the recent Commonwealth games. The event was one of a range of ‘Sport Showcase’ events demonstrating the diversity of sports available to the school community and offering pupils the opportunity to try lesser-known sports.

The high-performance fencers put on an exciting and impressive display to pupils and staff who may be interested in joining them in the Salle, before teaching some fencing skills to the spectators. They could also try on all the fencing equipment and get a feel for what the sport is like.

There is a new after-school club starting this week for 1st and 2nd Years to give fencing a go. We also offer fencing scholarships for those at a higher level. Some of our fencers will be hosting a talk in the Burrell later this month as part of the Burrell Society Lectures, where pupils can learn more about the sport.

With thanks to Mrs Norfolk and Truro Fencing Club for hosting the event.
