The Elite Development Squad at Dyke House College is a unique opportunity for young talented athletes to develop their sporting skills to a high level while continuing to follow their academic studies in a supportive and caring community. Dyke House has sport as one of its specialisms and is recognised for the quality of its sporting achievements, award-winning education and for state of the art facilities. The College is judged by Ofsted as outstanding.
The College's exceptional standards provides a solid foundation for the squad and successful athletes have the chance to challenge themselves and reach for the highest outcomes in both sport and in their academic education. Strong links with Durham, Northumbria and Teesside Universities will provide routes through to further education and to the development of sporting potential.
Since the introduction of the scheme just two years ago, both individuals and teams at the college have performed superbly and gained success in local, regional and national events.
Each athlete is assessed on an individual basis and through discussion with the College staff a personalised programme will be designed to fit around their studies.
