Aspiring Athlete

The Aspiring Athlete Programme was designed to give our most talented athletes from all year groups the chance to advance in their respective sports by offering specialised training and coaching. We aim to create an elite environment within the school setting which provides a strong educational foundation for what is required to succeed at the very highest levels of sports performance. 

This is accomplished by using a variety strategy, including resistance training, aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, as well as instilling foundational knowledge about nutrition, psychological techniques, recovery, injury prevention, and rehabilitation for people who have just had an injury. This extra support is given to students who want to achieve in sports so they can work towards their sporting objectives.
