High Performance Sport (HPAP)

High Performance Sport

The HPAP programme provides students the opportunity to continue their journey through the year in a sporting context. It is vital for our students to further understand and embrace the notion that a High-Performance culture is not just about the desire to win, and winning itself, but to understand the process and the preparation that is required to achieve at the highest level and to build a lifelong ethos of success and excellence.

Through the year all students will have the opportunity to meet with their mentor, access morning, lunch time and afternoon gym sessions, attend high performance seminars, attend compulsory fitness testing and train with high class coaches to better their individual and collective development.
