Academy Sport - Ski Racing
Reed’s is one the premier ski racing schools in Great Britain and is the school of choice for many exceptionally talented young ski racers, providing them with the necessary support to allow them to realise their potential, receiving a first class education alongside the ski racing opportunities available.
The Ski Racing Programme fully supports pupils academically through the ski season whilst they are training on snow, away from school. It also assists in the planning of training and competition schedules, offers access to a tailored fitness development, monitoring and testing programme through our High Performance Programme and works in partnership with The British Ski Academy and Ambition Ski Racing. Highly regarded former racers with British Team, World Cup and Olympic experience provide expert guidance.
The success of the Reed’s ski racers in recent years has been phenomenal – frequent victories at the British Schoolboys’ and Schoolgirls’ Championships as well as the Inter Schools Ski Championships in snow races have followed on from National successes in the English Schools’ Championships and British Schools Championships on artificial surfaces in the Autumn term. Our boys’ and girls’ teams won team won gold medals at both snow and artificial British Championships and were the overall Interschools Ski Challenge Champions to cap an amazing season.
Many of our pupils have been selected for National Ski teams and international races, with a record 14 pupils enjoying this accolade last season alone.
“I am continually impressed by the way in which our top skiers balance academic and skiing excellence. They work hard, train hard and ski faster!”
