The Junior Academy Sports Programme focuses on male pupils in Years 8 to 10 and aims to raise aspiration and attainment by using sport as a way to foster early engagement with Queen's University Belfast. A total of 110 young males, selected from secondary schools, participate in the programme each year.
As pupils progress through the programme, sports activities are increasingly complemented by an introduction to the study of sport within a university context, and towards encouraging attainment.
At Queen's University I have learnt many things, it has taught me how to work in a team better and how to communicate more effectively. Bailey Martin, Bangor Academy & 6th Form College
