The Friends of Bedford School Boat Club are a group of parents who support the boys involved in rowing, their coaches and each other.  

We also provide a link for OBs and their parents to keep in touch with the school rowing community.

Our activities range from providing hot chocolate and doughnuts for cold rowers after training in the spring term, to organising the annual Boat Club Dinner and Henley picnic.  We produce a newsletter twice a year to keep everyone in touch with the Boat Club, and are always looking for more volunteers to help out at events.

If you would like to know more about what we do, or wish to get involved in our fun and friendly community, then please email us at


We will be celebrating another fantastic year of rowing at our Annual Dinner and Awards Evening on Saturday 17th March.  It is always a wonderful occasion and parents, OBs,  past parents, friends and staff are all welcome to attend.  This year we are delighted to announce that the guest speaker will be Dr John Alder, Senior Pathway Scientist at the English Institute of Sport.

Further details about this event can be found here.  To book your tickets please download and complete the booking form.  If you require any additional information, please contact us on the above email.
