BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness) at Loughborough College

Over £30 million has been invested into the College campus over the last three years, to provide the very latest in teaching and learning at Loughborough College. The Hub is a modern complex, opened in 2014, with excellent dining facilities and a range of student support services all under one roof at the heart of the College campus.

A top-class Fitness and Sports Centre hosts a teaching gym, sports hall and sports analysis suite. Students studying sport also have access to The Pavilion – a dedicated teaching and coaching environment – and on-site athlete consultation rooms, as well as the Radmoor Centre’s sports hall and gym.

In its most recent OFSTED rating Loughborough College received a double Outstanding for sport provision, commenting that Loughborough’s curriculum is very well developed and flexible, including very strong partnership work, to meet the learners’ needs and their ability range well.


English Language at Stamford Academy

Founded in 2005, Stamford Academy is a family-owned and run language school located in the heart of Stamford, a beautiful stone town situated 100 miles north of London. The Academy specialises in the provision of English language courses for students from overseas and the teaching of European languages such as French, Spanish and Italian.

In 2010, the school gained recognition with the British Council as an accredited provider of quality English language courses, following a comprehensive independent inspection and is also certified by Cambridge ESOL as a preparation centre for their range of English language examinations.

The Academy has four purpose-built classrooms, each ideal for accommodating groups of up to twelve students - though many of our classes are capped at ten. They strongly believe that small class sizes are essential for students of any subject to fully engage in, and benefit from, the learning experience.
