Our Sports Campus building is nearly complete, but it’s empty! We need to raise the final £100k to complete what we had planned to deliver.
We need gym equipment, we need tables and chairs, we need wall murals, we need ambient planting, atmospheric lighting, and we need sound systems, water fountains and bins! We are also providing an updated Athletics Zone (outdoor), including new Shotput and Discus areas, and a new 40m Long Jump!
Everyone purchasing an item from the shopping list will have the option to be included on a donor list within the building!
Find out what’s needed to fill each of our amazing spaces, and if you can, please use our shopping list checkout to help us get everything ticked off.
We have split some of our higher value items into tenths. Please select the quantity that suits you best.
We are still accepting donations through our Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Sponsor Schemes, and are also on the lookout for Corporate Pitch Sponsors. For more information about these opportunities, click here.
Our large, 112m2 fitness suite will have plenty of cardio machines including rowing machines, bicycles, and running machines, plus fixed and free weights sections, and a 10m sprint practice track in the centre of the room. Designed to enable users of all ages and abilities to easily embark on fitness activities, the gym will use the latest technology to allow everyone to follow a personalised exercise programme.
The Mind & Body Zone is an 80m2 space for wellbeing activities, yoga and relaxation classes, as well as some dance. With a beautiful natural wooden floor, white walls, large windows and a calm, peaceful vibe, this space is designed to make us move mindfully, stretch gently, breathe deeply and think clearly. The room will also host a new sports science lecture programme, allowing members of the school and community to attend free lectures by visiting specialists from the worlds of sport, nutrition, psychology and science, encouraging us to exercise and stretch both body and mind.
Our Sports Lab takes up the whole of the bottom floor of the Sports Campus. Inspired by visits to professional sports clubs, a large, open plan teaching space leads through a glass partition wall to a suite of high tech sports analysis and virtual reality equipment: this area is designed to enable us to put key elements of the sports science curriculum into practice for the very first time. With access straight from the pitch, we’ll be able to video activity on the pitch (and eventually in other outdoor and indoor sports areas) and instantly watch playback on large screens and analyse performance, using the IdeaPaint wall for collaborative learning . We’ll be able to go a step further too, and actually learn how to code the activity on pitch and use the data to learn better techniques and improve our play.
