The PiPeLine Productions Academy for Sports – Keighley
The PiPeLine Productions Academy for Sports – Keighley opened in December 2015 after the closure of the former alternative provision, Your Sporting Chance (YSC).
The provision operated initially at the same site as YSC, Cougar Park, the home of the Keighley Cougars. PiPeLine Productions invested some money and also received donations from nearby Hanover Carpets to renovate some of the spaces.
However, in September of 2016, an opportunity to move premises came up and it was one which was too good to ignore. So as of September, the PiPeLine Productions Academy for Sports, Keighley is based at the Parkwood Centre for Young People, Parkwood Street, Keighley. This move provides us with some excellent facilities, tightens our safety and security and also offers great opportunities for collaboration with the Youth Service who own the building.
The provision itself continues the great work started at Cougar Park, delivering V-Cert Health and Fitness levels 1 and 2, key skills maths and english, a variety of physical and emotional health projects and for the past year, we have been delivering V-Cert Food & Cookery levels 1 & 2.
The Parkwood Centre boasts excellent facilities including a fully equipped, large kitchen ideal for our Food and Cookery qualification, a large indoor sports hall, large outdoor Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) all perfect for our Health and Fitness qualification, and a very large classroom for maths, english and classroom based aspects of our qualifications.
