"The specialist sports provision continues to offer excellence in provision and outcomes for students, and its ethos permeates many aspects of the Academy’s work." Ofsted
For us, being a sports college is about more than just offering an exciting range of opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities.
We use our specialism to instil a set of values in our students that is vitally important to learning and life, both in and out of the classroom. These include tolerance, co-operation, sportsmanship and responsibility.
This approach inspires students to have high aspirations, spurs them to extraordinary achievements and provides a platform for celebrating excellence.
Regular physical activity helps to keep students fit and healthy. This improves attendance and helps to increase focus and performance in the classroom.
Ofsted have praised our sports specialism for the positive way it contributes to maintaining a cohesive community within the Academy. It teaches students the benefits of participation and important social skills – both as individuals and as part of a team – and establishes friendships that continue into the Sixth Form and beyond.
