The Scottish Schools Grades Scheme


The Scottish Schools Grades Scheme is mainly aimed at schools and consists of 6 registration certificates and high quality badges, for each of the three weapons: foil, sabre and épée. However, the word ‘School’ does not appear on the registration certificates.

The grades are technical awards and can be achieved by any fencer, regardless of success in competitions. Each grade consists of twelve sections.  Taking the grades systematically can often produce better fencers in the long run.

The cost of each award is £6, payable to Scottish Fencing. The scheme is administered by Ed Rogers who can be contacted on edward@scottish-fencing.com. Feel free to contact him with any questions. He will explain how you can begin to use the Scottish Schools Grades in your club.
