We looked at many education partners as we wanted the best one for our Academy. We believe we got that when going in to partnership with Loughborough College.
Established in 1909, Loughborough College is steeped in history and renowned for providing excellent levels of high quality education. With fantastic links to industry and smaller class sizes, they are proud to be doing things differently.
With the Academy and Loughborough College working in partnership, you can expect the same quality as a university course but with access to better facilities and more one to one time with tutors. The sports courses are developed in consultation with industry professionals and are designed to ensure that you are expertly trained and ready for the workplace.
Loughborough College sport courses focus on the application of knowledge and provide students with the opportunity to develop transferable skills for employment and further study. As a Sport student you will automatically become a part of Loughborough Sport, which combines the College, Loughborough University, and Loughborough Students' Union.
Ofsted rated the College as Good overall with double Outstanding for its Sports provision.
Staff are sensitive to the needs of high-level performers, with specialist elite welfare support tutors being on hand to assist with learning.
I am very impressed with the education my son has received over the last year and also the opportunity he now has to progress onto the higher education Blended Degree programme. Over the past year he has had the opportunity to play in the FA Youth Cup and also got selected for the 1st team where he scored two goals on his full debut v Worcester City. A great place for Zak to learn both on and off the pitch.
