Sports Academy students who need residential accommodation have a real treat in store. Our modern homestead provides comfortable rooms, spacious communal and social areas, and facilities to unwind and relax. Supported by dedicated staff, with 24-hour security, it provides the perfect environment for 16 to 18 year-olds staying away from home for the first time. You will be sharing the accommodation with athletes across a range of sporting specialisms, creating a real community to enhance your experience of Oaklands Wolves and the wider college.

It’s nestled in our very spacious semi-rural estate here at Oaklands College’s St Albans campus, set well back from the entrance via a long drive past open fields and woodland.

When you’ve submitted your expression of interest in joining a Sports Academy, we can give you more details of this as well as the wider learning programmes you will undertake with Wolves and Oaklands College.

Our residential team is on hand to provide anything you need, ensuring the accommodation is cleaned and well-maintained, and providing support and pastoral care where needed.

Parents can be assured that Oaklands College will provide the nurturing support and attention to individual welfare enjoyed by all our students, residential and non-residential.

The combination of independent living and welfare support comes as part of a package designed to nurture high-achieving and well-balanced future adults.
