Most children in the city will never have had the chance to try rowing. The introduction of new rowing equipment into John Smeaton Academy will give pupils access to the sport and an opportunity to join in and compete inter-academy and with other schools across the country.

A purpose-built rowing suite is now part of the PE department at John Smeaton Academy, with 15 brand new Concept 2 rowers available. As well as being used as part of PE lessons, rowing will form part of the Enrichment++ list of activities that students can do as part of the extra curriculum programme.
