Students will also have access to a number of other types of qualifications such as other coaching awards, first aid and fitness instructor courses.

Club Links:

The Netball Academy will primarily have links with local clubs. However, there are strong links with Leyton Netball Club who compete in the National Premier league three and Essex Met division one. Leyton Netball club currently play at the Copper Box Arena, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Due to this link Players will receive training and individual feedback from club players and coaches as well as the opportunity to play at the Copper Box Arena monthly. We will also advise players finding a suitable club. Although players will play for The Stanford & Corringham Sixth Form in midweek fixtures, players are able to play for their chosen club side at the weekend.

Entry requirements

The Netball Academy is based on performance in trials held early in the year. Entry is limited each year and the quality of play is understandably high. Entry onto any of the academic programmes does not automatically entitle a student to a place within the Netball Academy.
