Sports Halls, Pitches, and Ranges

You’ll want to experience the modern feel of our multi-sports hall in our new Sports Academy centre.

Measuring 1,500 square metres, it includes integrated cameras and audio, as well as space for a number of different sports courts. You could play, five-a-side football, futsal and badminton, or have a go in the cricket nets.

Outside, you’re spoilt for choice with the number of sports pitches on our 360-hectre campus. Six pitches – three football and three rugby – provide our students with professional-quality playing surfaces. The main football and rugby pitches pitch are floodlit with dugouts.

Two 3G all-weather surfaces give an all-year round option for training and matches, if necessary. One is tested to IRB regulations and contains rugby posts and full pitch markings. The other is fully certified by the Football Association and contains full-size and six-a-side goals, as well as full football and rugby pitch markings.

We’re home to an undercover golf driving range, including video analysis software, a short game practice area and putting greens. Alongside this, we have a Modern Pentathlon Pistol Range, specialist equestrian facilities, outdoor running and fencing areas.

There’s an incredible strength that you can transfer between the worlds of sport and education. There are some brilliant examples of people who excel in both. Actually I was always a better student from doing sport, I was always a better athlete because I kept my education up.
