These additional sports and activities are taught by fully qualified sports specific professionals so all students can expect to be challenged and motivated during the sessions.
ACCORD ISS work closely with local and regional sports providers to provide a full range of additional activities so that all of our ACCORD ISS students have the chance to practice their hobbies or favoured sports.
