Sports for Schools is a social enterprise with a mission to improve levels of physical activity in primary school children, a mission that we at Bishop Sport & Leisure also support.
Schools that have a Sports for Schools event benefit from a fun fitness session and an inspiring assembly from their visiting athlete, all of whom have represented their country competing at the highest possible level in their sport.
The events do not cost the school anything and 98% of schools come away from their event with money to spend on resources such as sports equipment.
“Great athlete, great afternoon!
Frederick was the best athlete we had so far. He was engaging, looked like he had fun and delivered the assembly at a level that engaged all the children from Year 1 to Year 6. The children all really enjoyed the activities and, due to the experiences Frederick shared, developed a great understanding of the importance of perseverance. We would love to have him back next year.”
