Sport FAQs

Elizabeth Burton 6

Sport Student: Bessie

'I chose to study Sport because I have always had a keen interest in it. I've enjoyed the practicality of the subject and getting to know more about the sports industry; it's definitely taught me a lot about my future potential within the world of sport.

After my time at St Brendan's, I'm hoping to move on to an Apprenticeship based around Management of Sports and Creative Media.'

Bessie Studied: Sport, Music Technology and Music Performing

Sport Alumni: Tom

After St Brendan’s I went on to study Sport & Exercise Science at The University of Bath.

During my placement year, I worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Royal Russell School and as a Sports Science Consultant. It also gave me the opportunity to be involved in conducting research for articles published in The Telegraph on topics such as the 'vegan diet', which has inspired me to start my own blog focusing on running, health and fitness.

The career support I received at St Brendan’s was one of the main reasons I decided to choose Sport & Exercise Science. I also received a lot of support and advice with my personal statement when applying, which really helped my application and resulted in getting my first choice of university.

Tom studied: Sport, Biology, Psychology and an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification)
