Tennis at Myddelton College is led by John Whitehall, an award-winning former professional tennis player. In February, Myddelton College received a special mention from Tennis Wales for our work in re-introducing tennis through our top-class coaching programme.
Children embrace tennis and fitness and make use of our 37½ acre campus. We have four full-size tennis courts on campus so there’s plenty of room to practice! Your child will develop new skills and build confidence in their tennis ability. During their time with us, your child will participate in activities which promote teamwork and independence, build agility, communication skills and coordination.
The Sports and Outdoor Learning Department offers a wide range of programmes to support students’ academic learning and ensure they enjoy their time at the college and are physically fit. The students gain a diverse range of experiences that will benefit them physically, socially and develop discipline and leadership skills needed to be successful in the future, be it in further education or employment. The college has many athletes that compete in national teams including triathlon, swimming, gymnastics, horse riding, sailing, climbing and ice skating among others.
We realise it takes a lot of support to help these young athletes reach their full potential. Participation in national events and competitions means they may need to leave college early at times. Our Student Development Centre is on hand to give them the academic support they require. And our Microsoft OneNote software enables these students to easily catch up with any lessons they have missed.
