At Xaverian College, our students stand tall ready for lofty futures.
That’s why we found the perfect partnership in the Manchester Giants, our city’s high-flying basketball team.
Every year, the prized opportunity is gifted to those with the potential to excel in study and hoops.
Get selected and you’ll split your week between college and the court.
Four afternoons a week training with Manchester Giants, currently riding high in the top-tier British Basketball League. Three mornings and one full day on campus.
Ready to be a giant in your field? We look forward to you having a ball at the Manchester Giants Academy.
We expect that all Academy students will take a single or three-block options of Sport BTEC as part of the Academy programme of study. Choosing a single block of Sport means you can combine it with any two of our A Levels or Applied/BTEC subjects. Blocks of Sport are equivalent to the same number of A Levels, ie, one block of Sport is equivalent to one A Level.
