All of our Sports Academies at Durham Sixth Form Centre allow each and every student to develop their sporting talents to a level not normally supported in schools. We currently offer courses in Football, Women’s Football and Golf.
As a member of the Sports Academy, there are opportunities to gain nationally recognised qualifications in sport whilst playing at local, county and national level. Each programme also covers employability skills to prepare students for future careers in their chosen sport or in the wider world of sport.
