Primary School Sport

Primary School Sport has been operating since 2013 as an outreach programme from St. Peter’s High School in Gloucester. It has developed an outstanding reputation for providing first class sports coaching, competition and support for Primary Schools.

We believe our service is different because of the quality of the people who are involved in our delivery. Coaches are always carefully selected to deliver their specialist sports in your school depending on the age and capabilities of those pupils they will be teaching.
This is not just a business but a passion. Children of primary school age are impressionable and it is our responsibility to make sure that the PE experience they have in school leaves them excited about sport and wanting more.
