Welcome to Barnsley Sports Academy

Barnsley College is an outstanding college that is committed to supporting its learners to achieve both academic and sporting excellence. It is one of a few Colleges in the country with a Sports Academy that provides learners with the opportunity to study in any subject area and at the same time develop as a performer and pursue their sporting dreams. Moreover, it offers an exclusive Elite Sports Performer Bursary that provides financial and resource support to those elite performers who apply and are successfully granted an award.

Over the past two years it has invested heavily in a capital build programme which has seen excellent new sports facilities being developed at the Honeywell Campus. The College has also focussed on developing a national reputation for supporting individual athletes and producing some of the region’s strongest and most successful sport teams.

The Academy provides students from any subject area within the College the opportunity to combine their studies with performance-based sport.
