Rotherham United Sports College
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, STUDENTS at Rotherham United Sports College are continuing their academic studies from home using online learning platforms. Tutors will remain in contact with all students on a daily basis as well as delivering online classes and tutorials. The interactive learning environment will mean there is minimal disruption to the students’ learning and we are confident that the current situation won’t have any impact on their predicted achievement.
The tutors would like to congratulate all learners who are working hard at home to complete their assignments and continue their learning.
The Sports College are also still recruiting for our wide range of courses starting in September 2020. If you are interested in pursuing a career working in the sports industry and wish to continue your education into further or higher education then check out our courses below.
This week Education Manager, James Mahoney, has spoken with each Year 11 that has already signed up to one of our courses starting in September. “All Year 11’s across the country are going through a period of uncertainty as they would normally be preparing for their GCSE exams. Naturally they will be anxious – as will their parents, however we wanted to assure them that the current situation won’t have any impact on their place on the courses they have applied for.”
The Sports College are also pleased to announce that ALL Year 11 students who have signed up to our courses starting in September will now receive unconditional places. This will also take effect for all new applicants.
Any new applicants will be contacted by the Education team to discuss the next steps in the application process.
