Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


Loughborough Endowed Schools have been entrusted to deliver a first-class education to the country’s leading junior tennis aces, following a new partnership with Loughborough University and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA).

oughborough University has been announced as one of two National Academies for tennis, intended to nurture 14 to 18-year-olds who demonstrate the greatest future potential in the sport.

Alongside world-class coaching, science, medicine, and welfare expertise, from 2019 those selected will also be provided with an excellent mainstream education at Loughborough Amherst School.

From September 2019, Loughborough Amherst School, currently known as Our Lady’s Convent School, will provide a full co-educational curriculum for the first time.

The tennis players will receive a high-quality, flexible education and boarding that will fit around their training.

Julian Murphy, Headmaster of Loughborough Amherst School, said that the Foundation was looking forward to working with the country’s finest tennis talents.

He said:

“We are honoured to be working with Loughborough University and look forward to providing an education for future British tennis champions at Loughborough Amherst School.

“It’s a testament to our reputation for delivering a first-class education and we are confident that the athletes chosen to attend the National Academy will leave us, not only as better sportspeople, but as mature and confident adults.

“It’s a big responsibility but one that I know our superb team will rise to and we can’t wait to welcome the first cohort in September 2019.”
