Worthing College has launched a gifted and talented scheme for students who excel in their own sport. The successful athletes have been given personal training programmes in the gym, time in the Sussex Performance Centre doing strength and conditioning, as well as planned workshops with elite athletes and psychological sessions to help improve their performance.
