From Year 3 (CE1) onwards fencing is part of L’Ecole de Battersea’s sport curriculum. Children have a weekly one-hour lesson and are taught by recognised French and British fencing coaches, bringing physical prowess, mental discipline and self-confidence to the pupils. The school also offers fencing as an after school club activity every Wednesday.

Our school’s fencing programme is taught in partnership with Escrime Academy. The school follows the official Federation teaching programme (which includes graded badges) and children are encouraged to take part in various regional and national competitions at weekends.
