Besides, we are one of the fewer colleges in the country with a Sports Academy that allows students to study in any subject area whilst developing as a performer and pursue their sporting career. 

So if you’re serious about the sport, as part of the Sports Academy you will benefit from:

  • A structured training programme, overseen by our lecturers; personal performance monitored regularly by our team.
  • Training sessions and lectures planned to avoid clashes.
  • The chance to compete in the successful NPTC Group of Colleges’ sporting teams.
  • Part of national coaching schemes for your chosen sport.

If you compete regularly in a sport for the club, county or national teams and are interested in joining our Sports Academies.
