The fitness suite has multiple free weights and cardiovascular machines: including bikes, rowing machines, cross trainers and treadmills.

The weights room is only available to hire if a qualified instructor is available.

The dance studio is ideal for Yoga, Pilates, meditation and dance classes. There are 2 indoor cricket lanes and 4 outdoor cricket lanes. During the summer term there are 9 tennis courts on the Astroturf and a further two hard courts.

There are 3 outdoor netball courts and one in the Sports Hall.  Perfect for club training, or for anyone wishing to hold a tournament or match. There are two squash courts, ideal for matches or training. The sand based Astroturf has I full size hockey pitch, but can be divided in to two smaller pitches.  It converts to tennis courts in the summer.  The cricket nets remain up all year.  It is fully flood lit.

All these facilities would suit local clubs who wish to hire the facility on a regular basis, but equally, can be hired for group bookings, matches and competitions, one on one coaching and individual lane hire. Any sports camps wishing to hire the facility for residential camps will also have access to accommodation during the Easter and summer holidays, this includes a full catering package.
