Loughborough Schools Foundation have been entrusted to deliver a first-class education to the country’s leading junior tennis aces, following a new partnership with Loughborough University and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA).
Loughborough University is one of two National Academies for tennis, intended to nurture 14 to 18-year-olds who demonstrate the greatest future potential in the sport.
Alongside world-class coaching, science, medicine, and welfare expertise from Loughborough University National Academy staff, those selected are provided with an excellent mainstream education, boarding and pastoral provision at Loughborough Amherst School.
New boarding facilities have been created (Hahn House) for the players via the renovation of an existing building on the school site. This has provided a boarding facility for our athletes on the School campus, allowing players to be educated, eat and sleep all in close proximity. The arrival of our first athletes into the programme was in September 2019.
There are two National Academies: the Loughborough University National Tennis Academy and the GB National Tennis Academy at the University of Stirling.
