Fraser Kennedy, Performance Sport Manager at Newcastle University, said: “This is excellent news for the University.  It has been a long process to gain this Accreditation but thoroughly worthwhile. It shows how seriously we value sport at Newcastle University and our commitment to our High-Performance Athletes.

“This will hopefully give all our High-Performance Athletes the chance to achieve excellence in both their academic studies and their chosen sport, allowing them to be the very best they can be and ensuring the student athlete’s wellbeing is very much at the heart of everything we do at Newcastle University.”
