High Performance Programme
This programme targets students who have a high potential to excel in their sport, either by competing on the International stage or securing a professional contract.
Our HPP students are typically studying an Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Sciences or a full A Level programme. HPP allows elite athletes to continue their education while receiving first-class coaching and training in their sport. The programme length varies between sports but ranges between six and 24 months. An HPP student typically trains for 9–10 hours per week in addition to fixtures and their academic programme.
As a College we currently provide opportunities through this scheme to students in three sports– rugby union, rowing and basketball. Our offering is further strengthened by proud partnerships with renowned professional clubs: London Wasps, Leander Club and Reading Rockets.
Students benefit from:
Within the HPP Programme sits AASE (Advanced
Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence), an NVQ
performance-based qualification developed by
SkillsActive in partnership with sports governing
bodies, industry experts and other partnership
