"Students' social skills and morals are developed through a range of after-school sporting opportunities..."

February 2014

In sport, we all want to get fit and we encourage participation by all students in a wide range of activities and look to encourage excellence through high quality coaching in others. We believe strongly in the benefits of competitive sport.


The Stanground Academy has excellent sports facilities in its exceptional new build and we work hard to ensure students and the whole community can benefit from them.

  • Facilities include two sports halls, eight flood-lit five-a-side football pitches and one seven-a-side pitch
  • Our fields are large and pitches are well spaced.  We have two football pitches and one rugby pitch, as well as grids
  • The courts include four tennis and four netball areas.  We have a good artificial wicket on the cricket square, two flix pitches and markings for athletics and rounders

In particular, we would encourage the use of these facilities and the expertise of our staff through our Sports Centre and Sports Partnership work. Details of both of these can be found by following the links on the right.
