Pupils from Summer Lane Primary School at the sports coaching session.

Pupils from Shawlands and Summer Lane Primary Schools have visited us to take part in sports coaching sessions organised by our students.

The sessions, held at our Sports Academy, introduced the two groups of pupils to sports including mini basketball, matball, relay races and other team games.

The sessions were arranged by Level 1 and 2 Sport students as part of their courses which requires them to complete coaching sessions, along with voluntary hours, for their qualifications.

30 pupils from each school took part in the sessions and the response from pupils and staff was fantastic.

“The children had a great afternoon. They really enjoyed the activities”

Katy Hattersley, teacher at Summer Lane Primary School, said: “The children had a great afternoon. They really enjoyed all the activities and the students were brilliant with them.”
