Academies

At BOSS we like to offer our students as many activities as possible and as well as the fantastic onsite activity  programme that we offer when we don’t have excursions, we also offer six professional academies, all onsite (apart from golf).

 

We of course offer football, tennis and do a lot of dancing during our onsite activity programme, but the difference between those activities and our academies is that our academies are run by coaches who are qualified in their sport or subject.

 

BOSS Academies are not only for those students who participate in their sport regularly and must maintain   practise so as to maintain their level and develop, but also for students who simply want to experience something new.

 

BOSS Academies include horse riding, football, tennis, dance, golf and extra English.

Please note that BOSS Academies will take place during our onsite activity programme and include equipment but not kit.
