Master in Charge of Shooting, Iain Reeves, said, “It has been great that our pupils have been able to continue to compete in the above competitions in a socially distanced and safe manner. They have worked hard to develop their skills, concentration, patience and strength, and I’m incredibly proud of their achievements.”
