Everything about us

Midlands Gymnastics Academy is a family owned club which was set up in 2016 by ex-British Gymnastics Champion and Great Britain International gymnast Sam Thompson and her husband Sean Ashton. Our dedicated sports facility is located in Nuneaton, close to Coventry, Bedworth & Hinckley and offers Olympic standard equipment. We have classes to suit all ages and abilities.

  • Our aim is to make gymnastics as accessible as possible to as many children as possible in the local community. We pride ourselves on striving to ensure that each child is able to fulfil their individual potential in gymnastics, whatever their age and ability level. We focus on each child, whether they are training to become competitive gymnasts or taking part in classes to build their physical development and have fun.  Each gymnast is able to purchase their very own Progress tracker book if they wish, which documents their individual progress and allows both gymnasts and parents to work towards earning medals and see their progress and development areas.

We are British Gymnastics affiliated club and we follow their policies and procedures as the sports main governing body.  We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of our members. We believe that it is important that all members, coaches, parents and everyone associated with the club should show respect and understanding for the safety and wellbeing of others at all times. We actively encourage members, parents and coaches to share any concerns or praise with us as we believe all feedback is a positive part of our continuous improvement and development as a club.

Our Welfare Officer can be contacted at any time by emailing welfare@midlandsgymnasticsacademy.com

Midlands Gymnastics Academy

Coaching Team

We are lucky enough here at MGA to have a team of fabulous coaches who come from a range of backgrounds, including many ex gymnasts, some of whom have also been members of the GB gymnastics squad, representing GB at international competitions and being amongst the best Junior and Senior gymnasts in the country. 

We are proud to run a successful Leadership academy for young gymnasts who wish to develop their skills in terms of becoming coaches, judges and also learning what is involved in the running of the club. Developing the next generation of coaches and ensuring gymnasts are kept involved in the sport as long as possible is another priority for us here at the Academy


Our range of classes ensure there is something to suit everyone, from those tiny tots taking their first steps into the world of preschool gymnastics, to general gymnastics and competition groups to our range of party options. Check out our classes page for more information about all of our classes available.

Our Very Happy Customers
My youngest daughter has been coming to MGA for a while now and she loves it here, the coaches are really friendly and very supportive. Every session she comes out smiling and looking like she has had fun and worked hard. The coaches are approachable and fully supportive of whatever new skills she wants to learn. She has been to a few competitions with MGA which were really good fun and showcased everything she has been learning. Whenever I have had to email the club their response is very quick and helpful. What more could you ask for, for your child to have fun and keep fit whilst learning new skills in a safe, fun environment.
my daughter goes here for gymnastics and also had her birthday party there this year. staff are always very approachable and helpful and always smiling. the parties are well structured with 30 mins structured games then 30 mins free play. it's also handy to get the food area all party. its basically an exclusive hire of the club for your child. every child went with a smile on their face
My daughter loves her weekly gymnastics class. She also had a birthday party at MGA. Everyone had a great time and it was minimal effort for grownups with 2 lovely ladies running games for half an hour before half an hour free gymnastics time on the equipment with support. 4yr olds through to 12 year olds enjoyed it! Thank you
For the second year my daughter had her party here. We chose it again as it runs so smoothly. The first section is well organised by the instructors and in the second part the kids get free use of the equipment. Many of the kids came away saying they wanted to start gymnastics or that they wanted their party there next year. It is also useful that you have use of the food room during the whole party so can set up before the party not during like the sports centre parties.
Our daughter attends weekly classes and all the coaches are brilliant, we held our daughters 10th birthday here today and Kirsty was absolutely fantastic, so friendly the children had a brilliant time and it’s a really lovely party setting. Thank you so much. Xxx
My Daughters aged 8 and 5 attended the holiday club for the first time today with their friend. They currently attend on a Wednesday evening too! They were so excited this morning to be doing a whole 4 hours of gymnastics, well worth the money I will definitely be sending them again.
