Sports academies


When you enrol on a course, you become eligible to sign up to join our Athletics, Basketball, Cricket or Football Academy. You don’t have to be a top performer in your sport, you just need to show a genuine interest.

Our Athletics Academy has been going for one year and is already proving very popular. You can take part in the following disciplines:

  • Shot put
  • Discus
  • Javelin
  • Long jump
  • Triple jump
  • 100, 200 and 800m running

HCC’s Basketball Academy is widely viewed as being the foremost academy in the UK. We’re recognised as the premier Basketball College in the UK and have a long and proud history of basketball. We’re holders of seven national championships for the men and five national championships for the women, making it by far the most successful under 19 basketball academy in the country.


The Basketball Academy is on a winning streak! Having been crowned Regional Champions, they’re on their way to the national Association of Colleges Sport final. Read more here!

Our Cricket Academy is highly regarded by many professional players – many of whom give freely of their time to nurture our talent.

We have the first ever Football Academy in Hackney! In our first year, we were Champions League winners!
