Outstanding Enrichment Activities

We know that some parents will worry about their son’s and daughter’s whilst they are away – at NPTC Group of Colleges, we believe we can offer the best of both worlds, the comfort and care of living with a host family and an enrichment programme with a wide range of activities to keep students occupied in a supervised environment.

There is a wide choice of clubs, societies and teams available, ranging from sport to cultural activities.

We offer Sports Academies in the following areas:

  • Men’s rugby
  • Women’s rugby
  • Netball
  • Cricket
  • Men’s football
  • Women’s football
  • Athletics/cross country
  • Golf (men’s/women’s)

The purpose of the Sports Academies is to enable you as a sportsperson to combine your education with your sporting development.
