About The Academy

The Academy of Gymnastics was established in 2002 and is one of the most successful performance clubs in Great Britain. We have a group for every child, coaching a range of ages and abilities from Pre-School to International level. Every one of our experienced coaches work hard to ensure Academy members are looked after, and that welfare and enjoyment comes before achievement.

The Academy Coaches are educated to the highest standard and have been screened to ensure that they are suitable to work with children, holding a current DBS and Safeguarding Children course.

The club is based in the popular Portishead town, just 8 miles from Bristol on the M5 corridor overlooking the Bristol Channel and Wales beyond. With it’s easy access we have gymnasts that come from as far a field as Gloucestershire and Somerset.

Our Mission

We are a happy, safe, successful club where children thrive at all levels, have access to world class coaching and the opportunity to pursue gymnastics at all levels.

Our Vision

We are building a highly successful club culture that children, parents and coaches want to be part of, and where we balance enjoyment with the challenges of recreational and competitive gymnastics, creating a community where every child can thrive and achieve, supported by all members of the club.

Our Culture

Our culture is built around creating a safe, supportive place for everyone to thrive. We want to challenge you and help you reach your full potential. We are creating a club where there is opportunity for everyone to access the best coaching and best facilities to go as far as you can in the sport.

A club where everyone is welcome and you can truly be you. We believe gymnastics gives young people not just training in the sport, but training in life skills and foundational fitness for whatever you do in later life.

We work hard to create a culture where people are physically, emotionally and socially fit, and we protect our very distinct and carefully crafted culture.

Our Values

These are the three immutable values of The Academy of Gymnastics. Everything we do is built on these three foundations. Each value comes with a question we ask to make sure we continue to live by this standard.

Fun and Inspiring

We genuinely care for our gymnasts as individuals. We create a safe and enjoyable club for gymnasts of all levels to have fun, enjoy the sport, achieve success and grow physically, emotionally and mentally.
