Best practice in sports colleges

E-mail Print

Since their introduction to the specialist schools programme in 1997, Sports Colleges have been playing a crucial part in raising both sporting and academic standards, establishing successful partnerships between schools and the private sector and developing ways of working with the wider community.

The specialist schools programme helps schools to build on their strengths, establish distinctive identities through their chosen specialisms and achieve their targets to raise standards.

The combined forces of Sports Colleges and School Sport Coordinators will create a dynamic infrastucture for physical education and school sport throughout the country
