Sports for Schools is a social enterprise with a mission make Physical Education and Activity as important in primary schools as numeracy and literacy. Exercise develops the brain, is good for health. Physically fitness is proven to help children achieve higher academic results.
We do this by bringing the country’s top athletes into primary schools to inspire children to take up sports. A special morning or afternoon event is run at a primary school in which all children complete a sponsored fitness circuit the athlete. The athlete then carries out a demonstration, and gives a talk and runs a Q&A session. Feedback from schools and pupils is outstanding (98.4% good or excellent).
We have tripled in size over the past 2 years, and are using this success to help achieve our mission, most recently with the launch of Clubs for Schools. www.clubsforschools.org offers ultra low cost after school clubs, which are easy for schools and easy for parents.
The company has been in business for over 9 years, and has a pipeline of new service offerings to continue its rapid growth.
