Nat Webb, a teacher at The Angmering School in West Sussex, shares her story and tells us why boccia is so important to the school...

It is with great pleasure that I have been a small part of the Angmering boccia journey for the last 10 years. From the first moment being a support at a Schools Games event I was hooked and I haven’t lost the bug yet, in fact I may be even more obsessed. The school itself had been offering boccia for a number of years before but within the last few years we have had some wonderful achievements. We have been area and School Games winners several times with our younger and developing squad members.

Our greatest team school achievement has been the winning and retaining of the U19 Lord Taverner’s Schools competition. We came close a few times in years gone by, but securing our first title in 2015 was a dream come true for the squad and the determination of the players has allowed us to retain it three years on the bounce.


As a school we take great pride in talent spotting Louis Saunders and securing his place on the Boccia England talent squad, and well the rest really is history. Louis' break into Boccia GB was and remains a real highlight of our school boccia legacy.

We will continue to offer boccia for years to come as it truly is the sport for all!
