Previous School: Consett Academy

Sports student James came to study at New College Durham because he had heard about our Football Development Centre which is delivered in association with Newcastle United Foundation.

James said: “The facilities at New College Durham were really good. There was a sports cafe and outlet of Starbucks, which was nice and the gym and the sports fields were good.  I came here for the Football Development Centre and the football team were all in the same class so it was great for making friends and for bonding.  I would recommend New College Durham – it’s a really good place to study and I really enjoyed my time here.  I would describe my experience here as new, exciting and fun.”

James studied Sports Science at Northumbria University, while working as a part-time lifeguard, and is now U9-16s Fitness and Conditioning Coach at NUFC Academy.
