The London Oratory School is one of the few state schools in the UK with a rowing programme but a decision has been taken by the School Governors to stop offering curriculum rowing due to the education cuts.

The LOSBC Support Group have raised the necessary funds to run the program for the 2017/18 academic year and request that the Governors reconsider their decision and allow the Support Group to fund the programme for the next 12 months.

This will give the LOSBC Support Group the opportunity to consider longer term funding and other options, in the hope of ensuring all LOS boys and girls continue to have the opportunity to row.

    I called into the LOS to offer any support I could, I live in Spain but have some funding contacts in UK. I am a rowing coach, semi-retired. Unfortunately I called by LOS when the Parsons Green incident had occurred, and at the school reception was met with an unwelcome approach. I handed over a letter to the rowing master whom I do not know, it was intended to be helpful re. junior winning performances at regattas. I am considering contacting the acting head about what I experienced at reception, but do not wish to cause any difficulties for the Boat Club. I have been assisting St Leonard's Sch BC in Durham, another state school deserving support in difficult financial times. I wish LOSBC every success. Ray Ward

    Rowing is a great sport giving young people structure, discipline as well as exercise. Please don't take this opportunity away.

    Offering rowing in state schools is an important message about opportunities for all. Discontinuing it at the oratory further illustrates the gulf in opportunity according to state/ private and should be resisted
