Hartlepool Sixth Form College

Elite Athlete Scholarship Programme

The scholarship has been designed to provide students with the best possible chance of integrating a first class education alongside a successful sporting career.

Elite Scholarship

The Elite Scholarship has been introduced to streamline the scholarship process; our Gold and Silver Groups have been amalgamated to become the college’s new Elite Scholarship Group. The system offers everything that a young aspiring athlete will require to progress in their sporting career while studying for an outstanding education.

The Elite Scholarship now offers support across a wide range of areas:

  • Sports Nutrition - 3 one-to-one sessions a year and 12 group nutritional sessions with the Elite Group
  • 5 sessions with an English Institute for Sport chartered sports psychologist
  • One-to-one sessions with our onsite sports scientist
  • Onsite unlimited physiotherapy
  • Academy kit bundle supplied from Kitlocker

To access Elite Scholarship you must be playing or competing at regional, national or international level or attached to a professional club. For each sport the entry requirements are slightly different depending on the level structure within.

The changes made to Elite Scholarship make it very important to incorporate all of the athletes in our academy system and offer the highest level of support to the entirety of the group. With this in mind we have disbanded the Bronze Scholarship Group and have created the Academy Scholarship Group which will impact all our academy members. Anyone who chooses to be part of the academies in 2016 will benefit from the new system.

Academy scholars will receive:

  • 12 group nutritional sessions with their Academy Group
  • 5 sessions with an English Institute for Sport chartered sports psychologist
  • One-to-one sessions with our onsite sports scientist
  • Onsite unlimited physiotherapy

To access the Academy Scholarship you must be a part of the Hartlepool Sixth Form College academy programme.

The system has become very inclusive for all of our students and young athletes; our aim is to provide the best support and most experienced coaching staff in the North East of England.
