What is the Sports Academy?

The Sports Academy is designed to provide an opportunity for talented and gifted sports performers to focus on their chosen sport, in a supportive and specialist environment, whilst also gaining academic and vocational qualifications.

The academy has produced sports performers and teams of the highest quality - many of whom have progressed to study at university level or embarked upon successful careers within sport. The Sports Academy benefits from excellent links and partnerships with local organisations including Exeter City FC, Exeter Chiefs, Fitness First, University of Exeter, Tennis and Cricket Centres, Exeter Golf and Country Club, Exeter Mixed Martial Arts Centre and Exwick Tennis Club.
