In partnership, the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) and the NSW Sports High School Association (SHSA) are pleased to design and deliver new programs and initiatives that support the overall development of students and provide a clear pathway to Higher Education.

Students will receive access to tailored resources designed by ACPE that aim to support and further their High School learning, delivered both online and in person across each of the seven Sporting Schools. In addition, students will have the opportunity to apply for a full Scholarship to study at ACPE and pursue a career in Sport, Dance, Health, Business or Physical Education. Commencing in Semester One 2022, one student will be selected from each school on an annual basis for a scholarship to pursue a degree at ACPE.

ACPE CEO and Dean, Debbie Le Roux, said “This relationship goes to the heart of what drives ACPE.  It’s about having an impact, making a difference and providing learning opportunities to promote health and wellbeing as a holistic approach to developing resilience in the community.  ACPE has a proud legacy of more than 100 years in education in sport and we believe in the transformative power of education and sport.  We are excited to join forces with the NSW Sport High Schools Association to explore opportunities to do what we do best – providing transformative and supportive learning opportunities in sport for students, coaches and teachers.”   

SHSA President, Roger Davis, shared “The NSW Sports High Schools Association is very pleased to be entering into this partnership with the Australian College of Physical Education. We have known for many years that the Sports High School model where we offer high quality coaching in conjunction with an excellent education which is supported by a nurturing and supportive welfare system is world’s best practice. Even though the Sports High Schools have produced many athletes who have gone on to perform at the highest levels in world sport, this partnership will deliver a significant pathway for our students as they move from school to Tertiary Education. This partnership and in particular the scholarships will provide an excellent opportunity for Sports High School students to forge a career out of their commitment and passion for sport.”
