The Roll of Sporting Excellence (ROSE) Programme is about recognising, supporting and celebrating the sporting talents and successes of our students who compete at county, regional, national or international level.
In collaboration with the Sport and Exercise Science Department at Kings College London, the Esher College ROSE Programme combines sporting and academic support to help students develop as an athlete, whilst managing their academic studies. Sporting opportunities held at Kings College and at Esher College include the chance to participate in a series of workshops in, for example, strength and conditioning, sports psychology and optimising performance. They also have the opportunity to undergo physiological testing, as well as support in monitoring their individual sporting progress and the setting of goals that will help to develop a realistic performance plan moving forward. Furthermore, students are able to develop a network system amongst other elite athletes at the College. The Programme is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain a better insight in to the life of a professional athlete through working with industry professionals.
Sport at Esher
As well as taking part in a range of competitive sports teams at Esher, including netball, basketball, football, hockey and Rugby, students can also stay active as part of the complementary studies programme which offers a range of opportunities including badminton, tennis, table tennis, yoga, futsal, 5-a-side football, cross fit and circuit training. These sessions will be led by experienced coaches/teachers and incorporate opportunities to develop skills, strategies and fitness while having fun and playing recreational matches. Additionally, during wider skills week at the end of the first academic year, students have the opportunity to participate in a range of developmental sports/physical activities such as yoga and tennis. During year 2, students can complete a level 3 award in sports leadership.
