Fencing is fun, challenging and offers an alternative opportunity for pupils to develop their sporting talents. Fencing:-
- - is both mentally and physically challenging
- - is a sport that both girls and boys can enjoy
- - is excellent at aiding the development of coordination and concentration
- - helps children to develop self-discipline and self confidence
What we are offering?
Currently we are able to offer schools the following options which can be tailored to your schools needs and times.
- - Enrichment Session – a one off fencing session designed to introduce the basics of the sport and hopefully encourage new fencers to take up the sport at a local club
- - After School/Breakfast clubs - half term, full term or whole year activity sessions that enable children and young people to truly learn the sport of fencing. Generally sessions would be 1-2 hours long depending on available time.
All these sessions could be for both teachers and pupils, either as seperate groups or as a joint activity.

Testimonials From Schools
Rachel Wilcox PE teacher St Cuthbert's Primary
"We are thrilled to have been able to offer fencing as an additional sporting activity at Cowling Primary. Learning techniques and the self-discipline required to be an effective fencer has been invaluable to our Year 5 and 6 pupils. The sessions are skillfully managed and taught by Jim and he always strives to make sessions fun for everyone."
Susan Marshall - Headteacher
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim from Learn2Fence for taking part in our Elizabethan Day on the 5th July 2014. The primary school groups that took part in this activity were buzzing from learning this new skill. The whole day was a tremendous success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. Once again Jim thank you for a very enjoyable day."
