On Wednesday students who study GCSE PE, BTEC Sport and Exercise Science, and A Level PE travelled to visit Loughborough University to see the different sporting opportunities on offer. The day started with a talk on the various facilities, courses and sporting experiences available for Loughborough students. We then had a tour of the world-class facilities.
The tour included indoor tennis courts, athletics track, swimming pool and cricket pitch. Each facility was fitted with the latest technology and home to many elite athletes. There was even a hotel with altitude rooms to sleep in. It was also a good day to see some elite athletes training. This included the Paralympian Jonnie Peacock!
After lunch, the students took part in three different workshops to gain an understanding of the types of modules on offer on some of the sports courses. This included sports psychology, sports nutrition and then we participated in a range of fitness tests.
It was a great day enjoyed by all and a real insight into what a top sporting university can offer!
