Our sports department, with 14 PE teachers, is the biggest in the Local Authority and covers an incredible array of different specialisms. We also benefit from a number of professional coaches, including a former professional rugby player. The development of rugby over the last few years led to us becoming the first Northampton Saints Rugby Development School with a direct link to Northampton Saints Rugby Club. All students take part in curriculum-based physical activity each week and have opportunities to join in an incredibly wide range of sports clubs. We have excellent sporting facilities at the academy and across the Bedfordshire East Multi Academy Trust. A fully equipped sports hall, large gymnasium, activities hall, dance studios, 8 tennis courts, 6 netball courts, extensive field space and a new weights gym show just how fortunate we are. Many of our sporting teams are county and district champions, and our students play sports at the highest level.
