From their second term all students are given the option of competing in the British Sporter League, a national competition designed specifically for young target shooters. Sporter refers to the type of rifle used. The School uses the same top of the range Air Arms sporter rifles as the elite Scout and Cadet Force teams. Entry to competitions is encouraged, but not compulsory.
Like most shooting competitions the British Sporter League is run on a handicap system, much the same as golf, enabling shooters to compete in small divisions against others of their own ability. The competition is always shot during class time, and the Principal emails the results to the competition promoter, who collates scores from all around the UK and posts the results online. The school pays all entry fees and associated costs for the British Sporter League.
The School encourages those students who wish to shoot competitively to enter other competitions. The photo below is of the eight students who took part in the Surrey Air Gun Meeting at Bisley in November 2016. Students are responsible for paying their own entry fees for external competitions.
