This year sees the launch of our new Sports Scholarship Programme. Throughout the year our Sports Scholars will enjoy regular events including workshops, trips and visits. They will each be assigned a sports specific personal mentor that will provide guidance with goal setting and reviewing. Scholars will be offered weekly strength and conditioning coaching before school as well as receiving a termly report, reporting on their academic, physical and mental progress. In addition to this, all scholars will receive a ‘sports scholar’s handbook’.
