Northampton Academy Elite Sports Programme

“To provide a unique programme that allows students the privilege to access specialist coaching that builds on what they would experience in mainstream provision; underpinned by the development of Character and Excellence in Sport”

For the Academic Year 2019-20 Northampton Academy is launching a new Elite Sports Programme.

This exciting opportunity will give students who have a gift for football or netball, a unique opportunity to develop through a programme that will be incorporated into their curricular timetable. The programme will give students access specialist coaching to build on what they would experience in mainstream provision.  

Entry is by application only and will require students to take part in a trial, followed by an interview.

Only students who have been offered a Year 7 place at Northampton Academy for September 2019 are eligible to apply for the Elite Football Programme.

The Elite Netball programme will be open to girls who have been offered a Year 7 place for September 2019 and also currently attending Year 7 girls who will be moving into Year 8.

As this is an Elite Programme there will only be 14 spaces available for the Elite Football Programme.

The Elite Netball Programme will have 14 spaces for girls, made up from 7 spaces for the new Year 7 cohort and 7 spaces for the girls moving into Year 8. 

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for our students and is unique among schools within the surrounding area.

We will be running information evening to explain the application process and the details of the Elite Sports Programme on Thursday 13th June 2019 at 6pm.

During the evening, there will be an opportunity to ask us any questions you may have.

Please sign up for the Information Evening on June 13th here >>>
