About our education department
Bristol City Robins Foundation is a registered sport and education charity whose focus is to engage and inspire young people, raising and celebrating education achievement.
The Foundation recognises the positive role it can play within the community, so in 2011 it created a unique sporting academic programme with the aim of tackling the education inequality that exists within the city.
Through its continual growth in strength and capacity, Bristol City Robins Foundation now has the appropriate sport structure to enable learners to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, support and activities, no matter what their academic or practical level.
Such a structure sees the Foundation attract and accept a diverse range of student from a variety of backgrounds onto its courses. Each course combines academic studies with a sporting experience where students can represent Bristol City FC in competitive fixtures.
Each course has elements based in the inspirational setting of Ashton Gate Stadium, where purpose-built learning facilities bolster the Foundation's culture of valuing education. This assists in inspiring a positive attitude to drive: education, personal and social progress, without the fear of failure.
In addition to the purpose-built learning environment, the Foundation’s ability, passion and drive to deliver the highest level of education to individuals wanting to enhance their quality of life, assists in positive levels of success attained through personalised learning.
Furthermore, the Foundation has employed several sports lecturers to match growing demand, allowing students to study in a stimulating environment where the ratio of staff to students is no larger than 1:22.
The sports lecturers stay with the same group of pupils throughout the completion of their course, which reiterates their genuine care about personal delivery, allowing for a personalised academic experience, and creates a setting where no young person is left behind.
In addition to the compulsory course requirements, the Foundation provides students with a variety of extra-curricular activities, to further their academic progress and enhance desired life skills.
All of the above factors contribute to what is a fantastic and unique educational experience for prospective students looking to kick-start their career within the sports industry.
All of our educational programmes have limited spaces, and they always prove to be extremely popular. If you are interested in enrolling on to one of our educational courses, please contact us at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
Remember, no matter what grades you achieve at GCSE, Bristol City Robins Foundation has a course for you.
