Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme

The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) is a Sport England funded partnership between talented athletes, education institutions and National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of sport.

TASS helps young athletes – aged 16 plus – to get the very best from their sporting and academic studies without having to compromise. The scheme supports more than 600 athletes in 34 Sport England sports; as promising athletes they are all able to represent England and have been identified as performing at the very top of the Sport England Talent Pathway.

As a TASS student athlete at the College, you will benefit from:

  • Flexible academic arrangements to work around training and competition schedules
  • Workshops with guest speakers
  • A fantastic coaching and support team with a wealth of experience
  • State-of-the-art facilities at the Alan Higgs Centre – 3G outdoor pitches, 3G indoor dome pitch, strength and conditioning gyms, 50 metre Olympic swimming pool, analysis rooms

As a matter of course, the College supports all learners in fulfilling their full potential in any area they wish to, and elite sport is no different. We have a series of standards and practices which are designed to support the flexibility student athletes require to achieve their full potential academically, whilst still pursuing a career in elite sport.
