Academy Sports Introduction
Outstanding athletes in our Tennis, Golf, Ski Racing and Swimming Academies are offered a unique programme of training, linked carefully with their academic commitments.
Tennis coaching is carried out in our own fantastic outdoor and indoor facilities whilst the Golf Academy is in a successful partnership with the prestigious Burhill Golf Club only 10 minutes away. Our ski racers train mostly at Sandown and Aldershot – when they aren’t on the slopes of course. Our most recently launched Academy in Swimming came about because Reed’s was fast becoming recognised as one of the top swimming schools in the country with teams from U12 to U18 level.
A tailor-made academic programme, where applicable, fully supports pupils in our Academies whilst they are training or away from school at competitions, allowing them to obtain a first-class education alongside achieving their sporting ambitions. This balance has proved to be a unique attribute to providing a pupil with a well-rounded education and opportunities for social interaction beyond the constraints of their sporting commitments.
The programmes are designed to produce aspiring professional sportsmen and women and alumni such as tennis players Tim Henman OBE and Jamie Delgado, ski racers such as Olympian, Luke Steyn and are all testaments to the schemes’ success. Golfers, James Morrison and Ben Taylor, are the inspirations for our Golf Academy members.
