Arron Davies (Class of 2017) has become the British National Open Men’s Water Skiing Champion following a competition in Oxford in September. His performance put him in the top 13 in the world and was within five buoys of a world record! As a result, he has qualified for the Open World Championships, held in Orlando, Florida this month.

His passion for water skiing led to international success even during his time as a pupil: he had a spot on the British junior water skiing team and earned multiple medals at European competitions, as well as a silver at the Junior World Championships in Year 13. He is pictured above at the 2015 European U17 Water Skiing Championships.

After leaving Bolton School in the summer of 2017, Aaron went on to study industrial engineering at the University of Louisiana in Lafayette. He is now a member of the illustrious ULL water ski team.
