The Sports Academy was created in 2006 to provide an elite training and learning environment to help students fulfil their sporting and academic potential. The programme is very much an education and sport partnership. Due to the excellent education at Queens’ this makes the relationship unique compared to other Sport and education partnerships across the country. The Sports Academy is aimed at students who have previously played sport at a high level (county standard)
- To provide a programme of sport and education for students aged 16-18.
- To provide an opportunity for talented youngsters to pursue their sporting ambition whilst being in an environment which will also ensure their appropriate academic development.
- To provide students with life-long learning opportunities by developing links with Universities (both in the UK and abroad), professional/senior sports clubs and offering new career pathways which the student may not have been previously aware of.
