Sports

Students have access to a range of community-based sporting facilities. By supporting our young people to use local facilities, we help them to develop the confidence and social skills required to continue to access sporting facilities in their own communities after they leave us. Farleigh Further Education College is situated close to Frome leisure centre and students often use its facilities, including:

  • Football pitches
  • Gym
  • Trampolining
  • Fitness classes

Football is very popular at the college: Students have their own team and compete in a local league and many have participated in a Football Academy programme, which included learning about sports nutrition.
