I am extremely pleased to announce two exciting collaborations with West Ham United.
As you will see from banners above we are working to set up a Football Academy for both men and ladies aged 16-18 in September 2018 . This will afford students access to a top quality football development programme within the framework of our existing Sixth Form provision. The opportunities working in partnership with a premiership Club are obvious and include potentially progressing to study for an Applied Community Sport Degree at the University of East London.
In addition, we are now operating as their Community Sports Hub School in Thurrock. This joint venture sees two full time Community Hub Officers working in the Academy throughout the year. In term time they are supporting student progress in academic subjects during the day, running an extensive programme of sporting enrichment activities/coaching programmes after school, and in the evenings and weekends promoting the community use of our fantastic facilities. During the holiday periods they are running a varied programme of community sports activities for people of all ages and abilities.
