About Sports for Schools

About us…

Sports for Schools is a social enterprise with a mission to help children to be more physically active. We strongly believe that being physically active can improve many aspects of a child’s life, including their academic performance and general wellbeing.

We achieve our mission by bringing top athletes; World champions, Olympians and Paralympians, into primary schools all over the UK to run inspiring events. We work with over 50 brilliant athletes from a range of disciplines and sports, each one with a unique story to tell about overcoming challenges and the importance of following your dreams.

Sports for Schools events also help schools raise money for equipment and resources that promote physical activity. Over the last 16 years, we have inspired over 2.5 million children and raised over £4.5 million pounds.
