We’re proud to be able to offer our students a relaxed atmosphere to learn and the opportunity to transfer what they’ve learned in the classroom through structured, practical training sessions.

Students will work to complete a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Sport, which is an academic equivalent to 4 GCSE’s. We provide fantastic progression opportunities for those learners with aspirations to study a BTEC Level 3, as well as providing the knowledge and skills needed for employment or apprenticeships.

Students will gain the knowledge required for a substantial understanding of the principles of sport. Lesson modules include anatomy, physiology, sports psychology, sports coaching and sports research.
