Abby Johnston

Course Manager

Abby joins Imperial College London as Course Manager for the first time this year, after having coached on the course for the past three.

After learning to row at school, and representing Great Britain as a junior, she continued her rowing at Newcastle University before deciding to pursue a career in coaching.

Abby is currently the Senior Lead coach at Lady Eleanor Holles School, where she coaches the top girls at both sculling and sweep. Abby previously worked as the Assistant Director of Rowing at St Paul’s School and Lead Squad Coach at Emanuel School, where she worked with both girl and boy crews of all ages and abilities. This has provided her with a wealth of knowledge when it comes to working on the Tideway and the River Thames.
