Leisure facilities

From basketball to swimming

As part of our commitment to the local community alongside our wish to provide the best educational experiences we have recently renovated the previous Cowes Community Centre Sports Hall with access direct from our site.

Sports Hall


We have a full-size, fully-equipped sports hall which offers another valuable training area on our site. Training sessions are provided for students and staff.

Schools and groups are able to access the space for evening entertainments and team games. The sports hall is also available for all local residents and clubs to hire at preferential rates.

Gym & fitness studio

We are passionate about the health and well-being of our students and staff and have a number of fitness options that our students can access during their time with us. This includes access to our gym as well as a programme of yoga and fitness training sessions.  Equipment inside the gym includes a running machine, free weights, step and cycle machines and a multi-gym.

“The gym at UKSA has helped me maintain my healthy life-style whilst living away from home. I can easily include a quick session before my classes start, it’s very convenient.”Professional Yachtmaster Student

Indoor heated swimming pool

Swimming pool

Our swimming pool is a ‘Green Pool’, with an innovative heating and hot water system – the first of its type ever to be installed. All of our students have access to use the pool at allotted times and during the winter months we also use the pool for training sessions including sea survival. Whilst our pool is made available for community use, it is also available to hire with a fully qualified lifeguard.

The pool measures 14m by 7m and can take a maximum of 20 swimmers. There is disabled access via a hoist. The pool is heated to a comfortable 30.5 degrees. There are male and female changing rooms complete with showers and toilets.

Don’t just take our word for it

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to UKSA for helping me keep fit during my stay. I’m quite a sporty person and love doing yoga and was really pleased to see that UKSA offer yoga sessions in the sports hall. Just what I needed to wind down to after a full day of classroom studies.”
