Sports & Dance Stars

The Sports Star Academy will give you a better idea of how training and skill development work; how the body works whilst training; how we can make our body work more efficiently for us. We will also explore leadership with teamwork skills, helping to equip you as best we can, as you continue your sporting journey into secondary school. As we grow, so does sport, PE plus the way we train, by taking part in our academy we will be able to provide you with the knowledge to take the next step along your journey and make the most of it with our support throughout!

What we do

For those selected amongst the elite in Chorley through our Assessments, they will be invited to a 5 week training camp. Within these sessions you will undertake more activities that will help you mentally & physically, enabling an understanding of how barriers can be broken down with tips & advice but also the opportunity to work alongside the elite of your district (fellow academy invitees). Providing an advantage prior to attending High School and a feeling of the challenges ahead. Individual feedback is collated for all academy invitees, to which this is passed over to the High Schools PE Department to really solidify the PE & Sport journey they’re undergoing and ensure all sporting potential is reached. 

We are immensely proud to say that we have seen multiple young athletes come through our programme and go on to do remarkable things down the line. Our Sports Stars Academy over the years has been host to some of our most successful local athletes, ranging from professional football players, UK taekwondo champions, UK boxing champions, swimmers, dancers, basketball players, European BMX champions and many more!

How to get involved

This is an internally assessed programme in which for the Sports Stars section an assessment process is undertaken to determine the overall score for each child. The school will select the children involved in the assessment we deliver. We invite the top 40 children amongst all assessed to the Sports Stars Academy.
