Sporting Excellence

Hope Academy prides itself on outstanding sports facilities. These include:

  • a wide range of sports pitches
  • tennis courts
  • all-weather pitches
  • sports hall
  • activity studios.  

We also benefit from a sports and leisure centre on our campus, where we are able to access additional facilities on site, including a swimming pool.

We look to develop a physical awareness, competence and skilled achievement in sport in all pupils at Hope Academy. We also foster its enjoyment, and develop awareness of the social benefits and healthy lifestyle gained from participation in sport.

All pupils at Hope Academy undertake two hours of PE-related activity each week. In addition, at Key Stage 4 pupils are able to follow accelerated programmes in GCSE PE or sports studies.

There are wide-ranging opportunities for all pupils to be involved in sporting activities and be chosen to play sport at house, school and whole Academy level.

The outstanding sport and performing arts facilities can also be accessed by the community.
