The HPP enables our most able, promising, ambitious and committed athletes to realise their full sporting potential, including playing at regional and national level.
Pupils are invited by the Director of Sport into the programme where they will benefit from the following three main strands:
- weekly technical and tactical coaching by our extraordinary team of world-class sporting directors
- weekly athletic development sessions and rehabilitation overseen by our Director of Athletic Development, Joe Satt
- an enrichment programme that covers mentoring, tracking and target setting, a range of talks, seminars and workshops on topics such as sports nutrition, psychology, sleep, culture and values, leadership, teamwork, self-development and lifestyle management, and excursions to gain an insight into to the world of professional sport.
We also maintain close liaison with the relevant sporting governing bodies, clubs and counties, ensuring our programme marries up with what is expected of our pupils when they are playing at the highest levels of their sports.
Whilst we provide expert one to one coaching and advice for pupils in our focus sports – rugby, hockey, cricket, netball and lacrosse and – we also offer support in and out of school for our pupils whose talents lie in more specialist sporting areas such has equestrian, fencing and judo.
Recent national honours from graduates of the HPP programme include Lucy Price and Nick Page in hockey, and Nick Isiekwe in Rugby.
