Acklam Grange School Sports Academy

    2019 saw the launch of our new Sports Academy. 33 students from Years 8, 9 and 10 were identified on their attitude and commitment towards PE andSport. Local Olympian and European Gold Medallist Aimee Willmott and Headteacher Mr Laidler presented students with their Sports Academy branded school tie, t-shirt and jacket..

    Expectations: We fully expect the highest standards from all our Sports Academy students. Being humble, demonstrating respect, no arrogance and building resilience are the corner-stone values of this programme. We would expect all Sports Academy students to act as ambassadors inside and out of school.

    Acklam Grange School have developed a strong link with SRC Bede Sixth Form College. Here, the students will be exposed to first class facilities, tuition and opportunities to improve their skill acquisition, strength and conditioning and knowledge of leading a healthier lifestyle through a bespoke programme. Additionally, the Sports Academy programme will facilitate visits to other inspiring sports facilities around the country to provide our students with a platform to succeed in sport and life in general. We aim to develop students as sports people and more importantly as excellent citizens.
