Our Sports Academy is aimed at increasing participation and developing talent
Our Sports Academy is delivered in partnership with a number of regionally based clubs and coaches who we have developed bespoke agreements with, under the watchful eye of our resident sports professionals and high-level external sports coaches.
The mission of the Performance Team is to inspire, educate and encourage the next generation to pursue a lifetime of health and wellness. Whether a pupil's aspiration is to reach professional sport or simply to participate, we aim to empower them with the knowledge and skills required to make a sporting difference and positively impact on their health and wellbeing.
The academies are aimed at boys and girls aged 11-18 who display talent in their chosen sport. They will receive high-quality coaching designed to challenge the player from a physical, technical and mental point of view in order to maximise their potential.
We offer outstanding facilities including a double sports hall, 25m swimming pool, three squash courts, two astro turfs, 400m tartan athletics track, dance studio, fitness suite, shooting range, climbing wall, three cricket fields, 12 grass pitches, a three-court indoor tennis hall and outdoor floodlit hard courts.
