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 One Note software enables these students to easily catch up with any lessons they have missed.
