Sport science for schools
The Team Bath Physio and Sport Science Centre invites you and your students to experience ‘Sport Science Support in Action’ at the University of Bath!
This programme provides your students with the opportunity to learn more about the science of sport and how it is applied to elite athletes.
It is an exciting way to support your curriculum and facilitate the delivery of key concepts in sports science, and is tailored to meet your requirements (i.e. age and level of your group) therefore students studying at GCSE, A-Level or at Further Education will benefit alike.
Sessions available include:
- Physiology lab testing
- Field testing for fitness
- Various applied support lectures
- Video analysis
- Sports Training Village tour

“Thank you for our recent trip to the performance lab at the University of Bath. The testing helps put theory into practice and our pupils are always buzzing from their day with you. Your staff interact very well with our pupils and the information given helps them to begin to make the links between the theory topics. It gives pupils a timely motivational boost during their sixth form course, as they return to school with a clearer and more applied understanding of the use of testing at elite level to enhance the effectiveness of training programmes. The atmosphere and facilities at the Sports Training Village both confirms in pupils’ minds that they do want to study Sport Science at university while seriously tempting others to consider it as an option. The fact that Bath offer a high degree of flexibility on what they offer means we could tailor the day to our specific needs, making every moment relevant to our A level PE or IB Sport, Exercise and Health Science specifications.”

“The time we spent at Bath was really varied and packed full of content. The Year 12 students felt they had a chance to look around and get a feel for the University whilst also gaining valuable fitness testing knowledgem and the GCSE students particularly enjoyed meeting an athlete. The students had an absolutely fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed every element of the programme put together. I would also like to comment on how efficient your organisation was when I was arranging the trip.”
