Middlesbrough College Gymnastics Academy Testimonial

I trained in the College facilities before I came to study here, so, as they offered the course I was interested in it just made sense to come here!

The facilities are great and the coaches are really supportive. Since joining the Gymnastics Academy I’ve been able to learn new routines and learn more on any areas I want to improve on.

We’ve also had the chance to get involved in competitions which has been really exciting. As well as championships in the region, we’ve also been as far as Stoke-on-Trent for the nationals - it’s really fun and has really helped to improve my confidence!

The College is great. There’s everything I need under one room and it’s easy to get to with the free transport. I also love the amount of freedom we have - I’d definitely recommend coming to study here!
