Established in September 2009, the Huddersfield New College Rugby League Academy is a relationship between Huddersfield New College and the Huddersfield Giants.

The partnership looks to direct talented athletes along two main pathways; one pathway is responsible for making sure athletes gain educational qualifications that will benefit the individual during and after a playing career. The second is the development of player performance through specific HE provider, Northumbria University.

The academy is open to school leavers (16+) and applicants may be invited to attend trials as part of the selection process.

Students will have the opportunity to study a Foundation, Intermediate or Advanced Level course determined by GCSE entry requirements (see college prospectus for details).

The Rugby Academy has access to excellent facilities including a new 3G astro turf, fitness suite and swimming pool.
