Getting started..

Whether you've never held a gun before or would like to take up shooting as a more serious hobby, The Oxfordshire Shooting School is the ideal place to get started. Our fully qualified instructors will ensure you have a relaxed, friendly and above all, enjoyable introduction to clay shooting.

Everyone is welcome at OSS, regardless of experiences, ability and age. We recommend that children are 8 years or older when they start shooting, as it is a physically demanding sport. We have a variety of different targets and a range of club guns in different sizes to suit everyone.

We offer the perfect introduction to clay pigeon shooting in the form of our 'Have A Go' sessions. These sessions cost just £50 and are fully inclusive of 25 clays and cartridges, gun and equipment hire, and an instructor to guide you around the ground. We can offer these sessions to individuals or groups, and they usually last between 30 minutes to an hour. Gift vouchers are available, and make a great present.

If you are new to the sport we can talk you through all of the most important aspects of shooting. Topics covered by our instructors include gun safety, equipment, etiquette and a working knowledge of how a gun operates. During the lesson we will teach you about stance, footwork, gun mounting and leading the 'bird' in order to connect with a variety of targets. Our aim is to provide you with a solid foundation of shooting skills that will stand you in good stead for the future.

Please see below a price list for our sessions. Please note, clays and cartridges are not included in lesson prices unless otherwise stated.
