With very strong links to England Boxing and World Series Boxing, students will have excellent coaching from national level coaches as well as the opportunity to gain additional boxing qualifications and experience.

With links to a number of semi-professional groups, playing in high level national leagues and participating in international tournaments, we will provide you with opportunities to reach your sporting ambitions. The Academy is part of the National League U19 Alliance and gives you access to American soccer scholarships.
