Alternative Academy

Our Alternative Academy is a 12 week sport-based voluntary training programme designed to increase your confidence, motivation, and life skills. During the programme you will gain experience and have the opportunity to earn awards/qualifications in the sports we offer – climbing, BMX, and skateboarding – whilst also developing your personal and employability skills, meeting new people, tackling exciting challenges, and having fun.

The programme is open to anyone between the ages of 15 and 18, and is especially intended for those who may not want to pursue traditional education (school or college).

Beginning on Monday the 15th of April, the Alternative Academy 16 runs 4 days a week (Monday – Thursday), 10am to 3 pm for 12 weeks. To register your interest in the programme and book a place on the taster day (8th April) please email Linzi Harrow ( or call on 01224 627279 as soon as possible.
