High Performance Sports Programmes

Culford Performance Sport

As well as offering first class facilities, superb quality coaching and strength and conditioning across the major games of rugby, hockey, netball and cricket, Culford offers pupils the opportunity to combine a first class academic education alongside a bespoke sporting programme in four identified key sports:

  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Golf
  • Cricket

Culford provides a coherent pathway to develop pupils at Recreational, Development, Performance and Elite levels and each sport is directed by highly qualified staff with experience in leading and coaching high performance athletes.

These tailored programmes are underpinned with the same cornerstones and key values which include:

  • First class individual coaching with a focus on core skill development.  
  • Detailed and sport specific strength & conditioning, including functional screening. 
  • Full medical and nutritional support.
  • Comprehensive competitive schedules across the whole year.

We pride ourselves on adopting a holistic and flexible approach to individual student athletes. Culford’s Performance Sport Co-ordinator provides a single point of contact for all parents to ensure that we fully integrate all the demands of a busy school life with that of a performance athlete.

The programmes are predominantly delivered on the school grounds, using our own facilities, with minimal logistics, to ensure the most efficient and effective use of time. Exceptions to this include access to first class golf courses, including the renowned Royal Worlington and Newmarket Golf Club.

Culford’s success at integrating our pupils’ academic life with each child’s sporting aspirations has seen a number achieve sports scholarships both in the UK and the USA in recent years, including three Tennis Scholarships to American universities in 2015.
