Pool Academy


We know the value sport adds to every student’s education and offer a wide and varied programme of sporting activity designed to stretch and challenge even the most able.

It all starts from the moment students join us in Year 7 with hockey, netball, football and rugby amongst the most popular sports.  As students progress through the school, the opportunities continue to grow and grow with options ranging from mountain biking, climbing and athletics to gym fitness and archery.

We have our own brand new all-weather astro pitch and sports fields, as well as a sports hall, tennis hard courts, a dance studio, netball courts and fitness suite.

We have more than our fair share of sporting stars and our girls' football team regularly make it to the regional and national finals, as well as students earning individual places in the South West and, indeed, UK squads.

Alongside our sporting success, we recognise the value of sport as part of a student’s well being and that is why our offering is broad, inclusive and popular.
