Due to the coronavirus disruption to ‘A’ levels and the uncertainty of future plans for year 13 students, the NSEA have decided to allow these riders to compete for another academic year. This is in line with other bodies, who are also accommodating eighteen year olds for another year.

Head Teachers need to give their permission for these students to ride as a ‘riding ambassador’ for the school and Team Managers can then add them to their membership renewal list.
