KHS wins gold in national clay shooting championships


Shooting 1 smlThe prestigious National Championships attracts teams from top schools up and down the country. The boys are delighted with their success and are ‘chuffed to bits’ to have beaten schools such as Millfield, Rugby and Uppingham.

The event was hosted by E.J.Churchill Shooting Ground and competitors enjoyed its wonderful facilities set amidst 40 acres of woodland on the stunning West Wycombe Estate.

The day dawned wet and windy and the challenge for clay shooters was always going to be considerable. Nonetheless, team members Charles Bryant, Benjamin Taylor, Neil Taylor, Samuel Osborne, Archie Fox and Joshua Goddard were more focussed and determined than ever to do their very best and bring home the coveted title.

The competition was long and arduous and the competition stiff. When it was all over there was a long wait back at the lodge before the bronze, silver and gold positions were announced. The boys were ecstatic when announced as winners! 

The increasingly well-known Kingham Hill Shooting Team are sponsored by local country clothing retailer William Powell, who clothe and equip the team. William Powell’s director, Mark Osborne is: “absolutely over the moon, and delighted for the team”.

Headmaster, Nick Seward, is delighted and has promised the team an open top car ride around the school grounds to show off the trophy to the whole school!
