Sports Science explores the many aspects underpinning the science of our body while exercising. Our innovative courses, experienced teachers and fantastic facilities have led to the increasing popularity of this subject – the Sports Science Laboratory, located in the Mehra Faculty of Science, is one of the top school laboratories in the UK and is home to the latest specialist equipment and resources to aid learning.
At Oakham, pupils can study Sports Science GCSE in Forms 4 and 5, and post-16 as part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma (SEHS), A-level or BTEC courses. All of these programmes of study provide a demanding and scientific approach to the subject, with opportunities to explore both the practical and theoretical aspects of Sports Science. This includes visits to leading universities for lab-based physiology testing, and the possibility of experiencing background work conducted at elite, professional sports clubs such as the Leicester Tigers.
