The Aldridge Cricket Academy will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to either:

  • Continue with your cricket career
  • Progress through Further and Higher Education courses, or
  • Gain employment in fields such as Sports Coaching, Sports Administration, Fitness and Leisure Industry, Sport Management, Teaching, Bio-Medical Science, Nutrition, Physiotherapy, Sports Psychology or a sports related business.

Some students join us to as a stepping stone to developing playing or sports related careers. Others simply want to develop their cricket skills whilst getting the academic qualifications that will take them down different career paths. Jordan Shaw obtained successful results in BTEC sport, A-Level English Literature and BTEC ICT, giving him the chance to pursue his goals by being accepted for Brighton Film School.

ACA student and Sussex U17 player Jordan said: “The facilities are exceptional and there are so many opportunities on offer. The 6th Form work hard to motivate you and make sure you’re always on track to achieve well – they helped me to improve my grades and the careers team were valuable in my application to film school.”
