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 at least one block of Sport BTEC* as part of the Academy programme of study, which you can combine with any two of our A-Levels, or equivalent Applied/BTEC subjects.
*The Sport BTEC course is available as one, two and three-block options, equivalent to the same number of A-Levels. Applicants can choose any of these options and combine with other subjects as appropriate.
