New College Doncaster is an Academic Sixth form based in Doncaster and part of the New Collaborative Learning Trust. The vision of our trust is to:
‘make a significant difference to the lives of young people. As a result, together we will make a positive contribution to social mobility’.
Here at New College Doncaster, we are entirely committed to provide exceptional provision for talented athletes in Doncaster and surrounding areas. By offering a fantastic further education and a robust TASS Dual Career programme, we endeavour for our students to acquire the best platform to progress both academically and to the next level in their sport.
At New College Doncaster we dedicate Wednesday afternoons to sporting enrichment. Our offer includes the opportunity to represent our teams which include Men’s & Women’s Football, Men’s & Women’s Rugby League, Men’s Basketball, and Women’s Netball. All our athletes take part in weekly training sessions by professional and highly qualified coaches with experience of playing or coaching at the top level. Furthermore, competitive games are arranged in the Association of Colleges Sport Leagues. TASS Dual Career Athletes will also benefit with exclusive access to our strength and conditioning suite in both enrichment and free time as well as regular contact with one of our well-trained members of Sport Staff.
We have built strong links with several local Universities renowned for sport including Sheffield Hallam, Leeds Beckett and Loughborough. These links provide the opportunity for TASS Dual Career students to visit and attend taster sessions in order to build the confidence to continue their study and their sport into the higher education setting.
Our TASS Dual Career programme aims to provide both academic support and specialist advice to our athletes from well experienced members of staff. We intend to provide holistic support sessions to our young athletes in areas including psychology, specific training advice, nutrition, organisation, injury prevention and more. In addition, we can also arrange flexible coursework deadlines and internal exam timetabling if required around competition.
By working cohesively with our athletes, we are motivated to continuously develop our programme to provide an exceptional provision towards further academic study and/or elite/professional performance.
