The City of Edinburgh Council has announced details of the 2010/11 Sports Academy programme.

The Sports Academy is a programme open to pupils attending City of Edinburgh Secondary Schools and is in line with the new Curriculum for Excellence agenda for Scotland’s schools, which places the emphasis on pupils creating their own personalised learning plan and reaching the highest possible levels of achievement.

The aim is to assist pupils either to achieve or maintain their selection in Regional and National Squads.

All programmes are planned and delivered in full partnership with the National Governing Bodies and are in line with the principles of long term player development.

This initiative is multi-locational - a number of different schools, venues and facilities (including Edinburgh’s Telford College) are used according to the needs of the different sports and the requirements of the participants.
