Archery for Schools

Our qualified Archery GB coaches can bring archery direct to your school.

We teach in primary and secondary schools throughout the country providing programmes for young people aged from 5 to 18 years. Our sessions can be run as part of a workshop, as an after school club or as a one-off taster.

School Workshops

We can offer workshops for children of all ages, over half days, full days, activity weeks or long term projects. The activities can be designed to suit your requirements. For example we recently provided archery for a Robin Hood topic. The children were to able to handle our medieval longbows, replica arrows and other resources. We also have various work sheets available for teachers,  one of our examples can be found here.

After School Club

Our after school clubs provides a structure for your young people to learn how to shoot a bow and improve their skills. Under the guidance of our Professional Coaches, every junior’s progress is monitored through the lessons and competitions.
