Book a state of the art sports facility with Bee Active!

We are delighted to be administering community bookings for two of the best equipped academies in the city!

Ormiston Horizon Academy (OHA) and Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy (OSSMA) boast amazing sports and performance facilities that are now available to hire 7 days a week through Bee Active!

Take your pick from full size football pitches, single badminton courts, cricket nets, fully equipped theatres, mirrored drama and dance studios, gymnasiums and community kitchens – Whatever activity or event you are planning we will have a space to suit!

We’re going cashless!

From January 2022 we will no longer be accepting cash payments at any Bee Active facility hire venues. 

The great news is that you can still choose to pay online, over the phone and at our sites using contactless or chip and pin payment methods, meaning you retain the flexibility to book sessions in advance and pay-on-the-day depending on your booking preferences. 

We thank you in advance for your continued support and look forward to seeing you again soon!
