Welcome to eSports at Joseph Banks Secondary College

We teach students how to compete and play effectively through lessons and curriculum designed to teach students team work, communication, resilience, respect and problem solving. Students in the eSports Academy will develop their skills through game play and unplugged activities.

What is eSports?

eSports is a form of sports competition using online video games. At Joseph Banks Secondary College we focus on video games that are team based. Any student enrolled at Joseph Banks Secondary College can express their interest in joining the eSports Academy, students are then placed in the Academy if spaces are available. Students in the Academy will attend eSports before or after school depending on the College timetable.

Take a look at our eSports Academy and how it works.

Why eSports?

The aim of the eSports Academy is to provide an opportunity for every student to be apart of a team and competitive environment, while learning skills that can assist them in all aspects of life. Our programme assists students in the development of their communication, problem solving, collaboration, resilience and team work skills.


Students that join the academy have the opportunity to develop these skills, both on the computer and unplugged.
