    Return to Activity guidance from Sport Cheer England

    Cheerleading is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, with over 89,000 athletes across the UK. It is a high energy, team-based sport incorporating gymnastics, acrobatics and dance. 

    At Brookes the cheerleading team has been going for 13 seasons where we have won 9 National Champion Titles and 2 Grand Champion Titles.

    The cheerleading team takes on athletes of all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes, with 4 teams and a Pom team, we have a place for everyone. 

    The club is run by a committee of elected students, headed up by President Madeleine Bowker, supported by Head Coach Sophie Welton and our team of coaches.

    Training for competition teams take place off site at the Cheney School (adjacent to the Headington Campus) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30pm to 10:00pm.

    Contact the club at oxfordbrookescheerleaders@gmail.com


    The club consists of 4 competition teams; Infinity (level 2), Dynasty (level 2 non-tumbling), Eternity (level 1), and Legacy (level 1 non-tumbling). This year we are also introducing Envy (Pom) to cater to more athletes. 



    The club trains all throughout the week, with sessions taking place in the Centre for Sport's Studio and at Cheney School.

    Tuesdays & Thursdays are Performance Team training sessions at Cheney School:
