About Montagu Academy
Montagu Academy was created to inspire and provide opportunities for the next generation in a variety of sporting pursuits. We have looked to achieve this by delivering PE in primary schools and offering outstanding support for teachers with specialist delivery and resources – allowing us to reach a wider audience.
We have also developed a method of assessment for primary PE which helps ourselves and the schools to monitor the performance of pupils in various areas – including basic fitness. This assessment tool can also identify those with a talent that we hope to nurture in our ‘Multi-Sport Academy’.
Formation of Montagu Academy…
Montagu Academy was developed by Keiran Montagu who worked as the Director of Extended School at St. Peter’s High School in Gloucester for more than a decade. During his time in this position, Keiran had a real passion for sport as well as helping students who were not as fortunate due to circumstances beyond their control.
The importance of sport in a child’s development was an idea shared by Keiran’s late Father and former Headmaster at St. Peter’s, Lawrence, who had more than a little influence on the emergence of a ‘Primary School Sport’ programme. This programme saw St. Peter’s reach out to a number of the County’s primary schools offering the delivery of PE to their pupils. It is from these roots at St. Peter’s that ‘Montagu Academy’ emerged and we have now been serving primary schools across the County for the best part of a decade.
Why choose us?
Passion, Quality, Reliability
Over the past decade, we have developed an outstanding reputation for providing first class sports coaching and support for primary schools – as well as being ultra-reliable. It is this reputation that has enabled us to become a partner of the University of Gloucestershire too – taking their students on placement and also delivering training to them. Our service is different because of the quality of the people who are involved in our delivery. Lead coaches are always carefully selected and have all worked to junior International level or beyond in their specialist sports. 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.
