Sports Academy

The launch of our Sports Academy is an exciting new opportunity for students to pursue a sporting passion whilst obtaining a qualification from any of our full-time programmes.

The Academy will allow you to develop a greater understanding of the requirements of a professional athlete, whilst working alongside professional coaches and fitness experts who will help you become an elite performer. There are four disciplines to choose from within the programme.

The Barry McGuigan Boxing Academy
Written and supported by the former world champion, our boxing programme is also approved by the Amateur Boxing Association (ABA). You’ll work alongside professional coaches to improve your skills and fitness to a high standard – all you need is a passion and determination for a career in boxing. For more information, read the Barry McGuigan Boxing Academy leaflet here. 


Netball Academy
As well as receiving professional netball coaching in weekly evening training sessions, the Netball Academy will give you the opportunity to play in regular league games. During this time you will gain experience and new skills, as well as a qualification from your chosen full-time course. For more information read the Netball Academy leaflet here.

Football Academy
Our FEDO (Football Education Development Opportunity) scheme offers you the chance to train with excellent facilities and coaches. The course runs in conjunction with Hayes and Yeading FC and the Football Association (FA), and has been awarded the National Charter Standard Award for its outstanding work.

Rugby Academy
Run by fully qualified RFU coaches and with links to professional rugby clubs, our Rugby Academy is the place for rising rugby stars. You'll receive expert training, and be able to play in regular league games. There will also be the opportunity to coach at schools within the community.
