Bede Institute of Sport and Education

We are delighted to have launched the Institute for Sport and Education (ISE) here at Bede Sixth Form College.

Sport and physical activity play a vital role in many aspects of health and are crucial to the learner experience. It is widely recognised that sport and activity offer an array of wide-reaching benefits for students, from boosting concentration to stress relief.

The whole ethos of the new Institute is about using sport as a vehicle for positive progression. The ISE will provide opportunities unique to the Tees Valley for up and coming young sportspeople, and those passionate about sport and physical activity.


“Healthy lifestyles, mental wellbeing and positive progression will be the cornerstones of the institute. The aim is to enable young athletes to increase their academic attainment and progression while developing their sporting performance.

Running alongside their full-time study programme, the Institute will give students access to a wide range of sports academies, specialist coaching, strength and conditioning training, injury prevention management, healthy living and nutritional advice.

The reality is, sport can be a real vehicle for achievement, giving young people skills that can feed in to so many other aspects of their life.” Ben Robinson, College Principal
