This is an athlete development pathway for those students who demonstrate a positive attitude to physical fitness, a healthy lifestyle, the motivation to succeed at their sport, and a commitment to personal progression as performers. The timetable is planned to enhance the performers training regime alongside their academic qualification. Students have access to a range of coaching and support services.
There are additional entry requirements for the sports academy. Students are selected based on their playing ability through a trial or play test in addition to meeting the academic requirements for their chosen programme of study.
Academy students if successful will be asked to pay a contribution to the coaching services and fixtures.
