Record-breaking term for Health, Wellbeing & Sport programme

The Callywith Active Health, Wellbeing & Sport (HWS) programme has experienced another record-breaking term with student participation levels higher than ever before!

Attendances show that over half the student population of Callywith College have engaged in the HWS Callywith physical activity programme this academic year already. What is even more impressive, is that these figures only include non-curriculum participation, with all students selecting to access the activities in their own free time.

The free activity programme, which includes badminton, basketball, table tennis, gym sessions and 3G Astro pitch activities, has received a staggering 4,700 student visits since September 2022, and continues to engage with huge numbers of students every week.

Callywith Active Lead, Julian Wills, said: "We're delighted with the statistics, and the positive impact we are having on our students’ lives. We have created an environment that is welcoming for students regardless of their ability. We have deliberately designed the new gym in Fox Building without TVs in front of treadmills and cross trainers, as we appreciate the benefits to having screen-free times and there aren’t any anatomical pictures of people showing muscles, as this can be really intimidating.

He added "The atmosphere in all the sessions whether that be in the sports hall, on the 3G Astro pitch or in the gym, are respectful and friendly, which is a credit to the students we have at this College."

In addition to our HWS timetable, we offer a wide variety of sport academies including Football, Rugby, Netball and Basketball, more information on our academies and the HWS timetable can be found here
