Seniors fence on Wednesdays afternoon, Juniors on Thursdays. St Paul’s also offers an after-school club which runs on a Monday from 4:15-6:30, with individual lessons and free fencing provided on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:00. Coaching is provided by Professor Lance Larsen, British Academy of Fencing, and by former World’s Veteran Champion and Olympian, Jim Philbin.
We have first and second teams in all three weapons — foil, épée and sabre — and attend regularly the Public Schools Championships. The teams also participate in a league with other schools, fencing both home and away. We encourage and help to organise fencers’ participation in external competitions.
