Whether you decide to apply through and complete your academic studies at Brighton or Portslade Aldridge Community Academies, all ACA students complete their cricket training at the grounds of the Brighton campus and have access year round to our brand new, state of the art £1.8m indoor cricket centre.

The centre provides students with dedicated training and playing facilities. Along with enabling students to develop cricketing talent, the centre will promote and help maintain fitness. This specialist, sector-leading centre has three lanes of cricket nets with full run ups, full service gym for strength and conditioning and a cricket square. It will be a hub for cricket in Brighton, and is already a base for Portslade Cricket Club and Sussex Women’s Cricket, as well as being used by local primary schools.
