St Francis commenced an in-house Archery club in 2015/16, continuing into 2017.
Running for an hour on a Monday, sessions were designed to give our pupils an experience of something new and challenging, which had the potential to extend beyond a short 5 or 6 week horizon, with links to outside clubs.
Run by the brilliant staff members of Blackburn Archery, pupils took part in a 6 week block of developmental learning, which culminated in a BwD Competition later in the school year. In 2015/16, St Francis achieved a creditable 3rd place in their first attempt!
While the archery club no longer takes place in school, we highly recommend joining Blackburn Archery outside of school hours for anyone interested in learning a new sport.
