Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS)

Priestley College leads the way in supporting talented athletes in England after we received a new accreditation.

The honour was awarded by the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) recognising the way Priestley supports students in achieving both their sporting and academic goals.

Among the 16 who have already selected for the programme are GB rowers, jujitsu athletes, swimmers, kickboxers, as well as regional Thai boxers and rugby players.

By highlighting their sporting commitments and successes, tutors will be able to offer extra support such as virtual catchup sessions to review work when a student is competing away from home.

To apply for Priestley’s TASS programme please complete the expression of interest form and email to k.butler@priestley.ac.uk > TASS Initial Expression of Interest

Netball Academy

Join our thriving netball academy and benefit from some high-level coaching as well as memorable experience both on the court and off it. You can join the academy even if you don’t study a sport subject. Matches are on Wednesday afternoons in the AoC Cup and the North West College League. Training is scheduled so as not to clash with your lessons so that you can develop your skills and match play in college.
