Rowing Club

Founded in 1946 when it was the grammar school and the existing boathouse was built in 1971. 

Over the years we have had many successful rowers achieve international standard and some even gone to compete in the Olympics, with the club growing more and more each year we hope to continue achieving these results!

The club is now run solely by volunteer coaches and administration staff, most of whom are present and past parents of club members and more recently an ex GB rower now parent joining the team.  
As a club we attend most of the locally run competitions and several national heads and regattas each year. We cater at local events, bag-pack at supermarkets and hold other fund-raising events throughout the year to keep the club running.


We provide taster rowing sessions and training for students within school time and adult rowing courses in the summer. 

QPHS Rowing Club chairman Richard Cox was named winner of the Regional Volunteer of the Year award for the North West 2017 by British Rowing in recognition of his significant contribution to the sport.
