We are the base of the Yorkshire Regional Training Centre and a national academy training venue, with our own pentathlon academy coached by the talent coaches.
Following a review into the College’s management and delivery of its Training Centre, and glowing feedback on its state-of-the-art facilities from those using it, Pentathlon GB has upgraded the College to Academy Status – only the second institution in the country to be granted such an accolade.
Modern pentathletes and those with potential are able to join the Bishop Burton Academy and combine academic study with specialist elite training. As a pentathlon academy member, students have access to Bishop Burton’s outstanding facilities and its wide range of sports science support, including fitness testing, sports medicine and strength and conditioning resources.
The College offers a regular and structured full-time training programme with the aim of getting the best out of each individual athlete. There are also opportunities to access the AASE programme that allows study and training to be adapted to the benefit of the individuals.
