This is an exciting time to be joining the Esports team. As one of the first providers of this British Esports Association accredited course, we have been at the forefront of innovation and continue to provide unparalleled provision. Esports sits within the Business & Legal Studies Department, which is a thriving and dynamic area catering for 1000+ students studying a range of A-level, vocational and enrichment courses in Esports, Business, Law & Criminology.

This state-of-the-art facility allows for our enrichment students to compete in the British Esports Student Champs tournaments. Esports lessons take place in dedicated teaching rooms with excellent facilities for shoutcasting, live streaming, digital game design, sound and video production.
