The College is only open to our most vulnerable students (including those on EHCPs, or who are in care or have a social worker) and the children of key workers. All lessons will continue to run virtually for all students. The College opens at 9am. Please notify us before 10.30am if you wish to access the College past 12 noon so we can ensure facilities and access are available. The government has published a letter explaining how the summer grades will be calculated. The letter has been emailed to you and a link is in the news section of this website.

Elite Athlete Numbers Grow

Posted on 6th October 2016

Some of this year's Elite Athletes ~ Back Row L-R: Joe Beckingsale (Cycling), James Milburn (Athletics) Middle Row L-R: Aimee Stephenson (Sailing), Alice Watson (Fencing), Beatrice Satac (Shito-Ryu) Front Row L-R: Alex Pavel (Tennis), Megan Phillips (Tug of War), Greta Hampson (Synchronised Swimming), Adam Rowlatt (Sailing)

This year sees eleven students joining the College’s, now well established, Elite Athlete Programme.

The programme enables high performing student athletes the opportunity to access vital services to facilitate their progression and maximise their potential on and off the field.

Students receive extensive support, ranging from on-site physiotherapy to sports psychology. This is often delivered by high profile experts.

Students also benefit from one-to-one coaching sessions which are integrated into their timetable. Sixth Sense Fitness, the College’s onsite, independent fitness facility, also provides students with personalised training programmes and nutritional advice.

Through the programme, students have managed to balance outstanding results at international competitions, alongside top grades in their studies.

Any student who is competing at international level in their given sport is eligible to join so if you would like to find out more, e-mail Andy Douthwaite, Head of PE, call 01432 346906 or come and pay a visit during one of our open events.
