While the majority of us were spending the weekend before the start of the new school year trying to find our pencil cases and digging out our ties, Year 9 student, Fern L, was busy achieving great success in the clay pigeon shooting world. 

On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, Fern competed in the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (CPSA) British Open Sporting Championship at Barbury Shooting Ground and did so well that she scooped the title of British Ladies Colt Champion. This is a massive achievement for Fern. Some 1,213 people of all ages and abilities entered the competition to shoot the same course.

Fern shot on Saturday and achieved a score of 91/120 on the championship course.  This placed her third in the C class (out of 188 people), sixteenth in Ladies (out of 95) and first in Ladies Colts. This score qualified her for the finals day on Sunday, where she successfully won the Ladies Colt category with 49/75 on a very tricky course, shooting against people much older and with much more experience.

Congratulations, Fern, we look forward to hearing more news of your continued success.
