For the more serious players there are opportunities to trial for teams or for selection into one of our exclusive sport-specific academies, and support for gifted & talented sports people.
Participation for all
The multi-gym, floodlit multi-use games area (MUGA) and indoor sports hall are open to all students, with an extensive programme of open sports activities for every student to access throughout the week.
The college competes in AoC Sport Leagues, Cups & Championships, along with various local leagues, cups and festival events on Wednesday afternoons, during enrichment .
Support for gifted and talented athletes
Students who are gifted and talented in sports and not accepted into an elite academy are often given support on an individual basis dependent upon their need. This could include help with the costs of specific equipment required to compete at elite level or transport costs to national level competitions.
We aim to enhance the quality and level of sporting achievement of all individuals and teams; encouraging and supporting students who want to play, coach, lead and officiate sport from recreational to elite level.
