Tennis Academy

The Grimsby Institute is very proud to offer Sporting Academies in a range of disciplines; Football, Golf, Boxing and Tennis all of which are coordinated by highly qualified, well-known and respected coaches.

It is our intention to use the Institute’s ability to combine education and sport, to facilitate the pursuit of excellence for the area’s aspiring young athletes. This will be achieved by providing high quality coaching enhanced by other essential components such as dieting advice and sports psychology. Academy athletes will also be supported by the provision of fitness and rehabilitation facilities.

Football Academy

The Grimsby Institute's Football Development Centre has won three league titles and promotion to the English Colleges Football Association Premier League. Over the past seven years, they have also been the holders of the prestigious National Cup.

As one of the first six colleges in the country to achieve the FA standard charter logo, the Centre has had 12 players selected to play for the English Schools and English Colleges Squads; in 2007 Scott Drury, Tim Lowe and Nathan Would were successful. It has also seen 16 players successfully progress through the system to sign for Grimsby Town Football Club, with five having played for the first team.

Book Club

There are two common misconceptions of book clubs. One is that they exist purely for bored housewives to get together and have a good gossip.The other is that they are filled with people trying to make themselves sound intelligent by reading too much into a book.

The Fiction Forum wants to prove everyone who believes this wrong. Reading is a pleasure and sharing your views about books should be too. So if, like us, you love reading come and share your passion. The Fiction Forum will give everybody the opportunity to champion their favourite read and discover something new and inspiring.
