From the start of the new term in September, Loughborough Schools Foundation will be delivering a first-class education to the country’s leading junior tennis aces, following a 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, the selected junior tennis players will also be provided with an excellent mainstream education and boarding at Loughborough Amherst School.
Julian Murphy, Headmaster of Loughborough Amherst School, said that the Foundation was looking forward to working with the country’s finest tennis talents.
He said: “We are honoured to be working with Loughborough University and look forward to providing an education for future British tennis champions at Loughborough Amherst School.
“It’s a testament to our reputation for delivering a first-class education and we are confident that the athletes chosen to attend the National Academy will leave us, not only as better sportspeople, but as mature and confident adults.
“It’s a big responsibility but one that I know our superb team will rise to and we are looking forward to welcoming our first cohort in September”
