The Beaconhurst Triathlon Academy supports young people to pursue top level performance in triathlon and combine this with a first class education. Beaconhurst pupils have achieved great things in triathlon, competing in local, national and international events. We work closely alongside Triathlon Scotland and offer educational support for some of their most talented athletes.
“Triathlon Scotland are delighted to work in partnership with Beaconhurst to support and advise on the delivery of the Triathlon Athlete Development Framework to their pupils who are focused on developing their interest in triathlon. It is great to see a school put such a big commitment in to enabling young people to be fit and active alongside a solid education. We look forward to working with those pupils as they develop on the performance pathway or pursue other routes in the sport.” — Jane Moncrieff, CEO of Triathlon Scotland
Our geography is ideal for developing the skills of young triathletes. There are fantastic trail runs and bike paths in the local area which we use for training. Our pupils also train at the National Swimming Academy, at the University of Stirling.
