Welcome to our College Sports Programme
Sport is a compulsory part of the timetable at College, with students attending weekly, coached sessions at Westwood Academy, focusing on team sports. We also incorporate sports into our trips and activities, locally with ice skating at Planet Ice in Coventry and internationally with an Easter Ski trip to Austria.
Students are encouraged to create their own sporting Clubs and Societies to pursue additional sports or even to try something new. In 2019 students run the following sports clubs:
- Basketball Club
- Dance Society
Students can also join local sports teams as part of their immersion experience and we’ll help find a relevant team. We can also arrange for personal sports coaching, for an additional fee.
Other Sports Opportunities
Students have use of the Excel Leisure Centre which is just a short walk from the College, and has a swimming pool, sports halls, and outdoor pitches for a variety of sports. Students aged 18+ living at the residence can access a well equipped, state-of-the-art gym and attend yoga and fitness classes.
Both staff and students also take part in fun runs and charity sports events to raise money for local charitable causes including the Myton Hospice, annual ‘Santadash’ at Christmas
Clubs and Societies
‘Climbsoc‘, is one of our extra curricular clubs led by Dr Appleyard.
Our students follow a bespoke 5 week training course at the brand new climbing wall facility at the University of Warwick. Students learn how to climb safely, tie the correct knots, fit a harness and belay another student. Learning these skills allows our students to register and have use of the climbing wall centre at any time!
