…without having to use your school budget!
Last year, 98% of schools ended up with a voucher to spend on improving physical activity, raising from a couple of hundred pounds to over £1000! What would your school spend yours on? A big-ticket item you’ve been longing for like a trampoline? A football for each child?! The world (or Bishop Sport & Leisure catalogue) is your oyster!

More information about our events
- What is a Sports for Schools event?Sports for Schools is a social enterprise that brings the country's top athletes into primary schools to encourage the children (and teachers!) to be more active. The athlete will run a fun fitness circuit with the children and then deliver an inspirational assembly.
- Why is it important?The athletes are fantastic role models who show the children the power of hard work and perseverance. The events create memories which last a lifetime and show the children the value of grit and determination.
- How much does it cost?Visits do not cost the school anything. They are designed to help schools raise money to support greater physical activity and well-being for children. The events are based on a sponsorship initiative . From the grand total of the money raised, a small participation fee is deducted to cover the base cost of running the scheme. The rest of the money is split 60/40. 60% goes to the school to spend on new sports equipment or on a programme to improve physical activity and well being. 40% goes to Sports for Schools to help fund the athletes and the scheme.
“Jemima Yeats-Brown came to visit our school and she was excellent. She gave a very engaging and inspiring assembly that some pupils and staff said was the best assembly they had ever had! Our Sportivater was extremely helpful and considerate to our cohort of pupils, and everything was run smoothly and professionally. I would recommend the experience to any school!” (Hallmoor School, 2023)
