Talented Athletes Programme

This is a dedicated programme for our students to maximise their athletic performance potential. The Talented Athlete Programme includes:

  • extra training sessions with our coaches
  • a personalised training programme
  • additional learning opportunities, such as sports psychology and nutrition.

Our experienced and dedicated coaches lead the Talented Athlete Programme, to ensure that our students have outstanding opportunities to develop their potential.

These dedicated sessions are run to ensure that our young sportsmen and women not only develop athletically but gain the knowledge and expertise required to take control of their own training regimes in a safe, effective and motivating environment.

The Talented Athlete Programme is designed to empower our students, to give them the educational understanding and confidence to train like elite athletes.

Attending the Talented Athlete Programme is compulsory for our Sports Scholars and Exhibitioners, but it is open to all students.
