The College is home of the Hull FC Academy, accelerating the development of young talent to Super League whilst providing full time Bishop Burton education.

The College also benefits from being the official academy partner for their performance pathway.

Hull FC have successfully made the step up from Grade Two Academy Status to a youth system that has been officially accredited as 'outstanding in all areas ', following a review from the Rugby Football League.

All aspects of the system were rated with the highest mark, which included the quality and leadership in management of the academy, which is currently under the firm guidance of Head of Youth Performance Danny Wilson.

We have a great home at Bishop Burton with a fantastic relationship with the College and credit must be given to them to for this accreditation.
