Activity sessions

Regular sport and physical activity sessions take place on school premises and are delivered by a suitably qualified coach.

It would be difficult to provide many of the sport sessions without trained volunteers. We need people to support us by delivering coaching and helping out at events.

Email if you'd like to have a chat about how you could help.
