Sport and Professional Fitness

Turn your passion for sport into a fulfilling career.

The possibilities are endless; whether you’re interested in coaching, physiotherapy or sports business, we have a course for you.

Our professional facilities and dedicated teaching staff will enable you to unlock your potential and open the door to a lifelong and rewarding career in sports.

Students will also benefit from the College’s strong links with the West Ham United Foundation and the many initiatives that we run in partnership with the London Borough of Newham.

Newham College’s Sports Academy has three specialist areas;

  • Football - in partnership with the West Ham Foundation
  • Cricket – as part of the national championship-winning Newham College team
  • Boxing - combines full-time education with 5 hours a week of high-quality boxing coaching throughout the academic year

Both academy areas are combined with our study programmes, which support learners in achieving their goals, progress and development.

Being part of the Newham College Sports Academy requires commitment and dedication. You will study a college course and train a minimum of twice a week to develop your specialist skills through technical, tactical and game/completion related drills. You will also have access to our Fitness Suite where you will be given individualised strength and conditioning sessions. Competitions are played once a week.

The rewards of being part of the Newham College Sports Academy include positive links with Sport England and the opportunity to play at a competitive local and national level.

The facilities at Newham College are amazing! The course has helped me a lot more than my previous course at another college in Newham. The teachers are reliable and always available for support. Since starting here my confidence has improved and I am comfortable managing activities with large groups of students. I’m now going to study sports and business at university.
