We are currently providing support to the following schools

Braunstone Frith Primary School   Stokes Wood Primary School

Sports Development

The college is breaking new grounds through the innovative sports development work that is helping with the college’s ambition of placing the college at the heart of the community. The colleges current facilities are of the highest quality and are home to well established and well run community focussed clubs. The college wishes to grow this concept and work with like-minded partners that share the same ethos and principals to develop a Learning and Sports Village hub that will be a heartbeat for sports development.

The college is well linked with sports development organisations and in particular National Governing Bodies of Sport. We are very mindful of the national direction of travel but more importantly we are familiar with translating the national direction of travel in to meaningful outcomes for our partners and in particular our young people.

Over the 5 years of our sport and physical activity strategy we are committed to working with our partners to increase participation in sport and physical activity. We recognise that this is not possible without the support of the many volunteers and coaches. Endless hours are committed by these valuable individuals that provide opportunities to participate in their respective sports from grass roots through to being on the verges of the Olympic Games.
