Centres of Excellence

We believe that school-to-school support is the most effective method to deliver sustainable improvement.

This is why we are coordinating a network of Centres of Excellence to enable the best practice across South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire to share their expertise in PE and sport.

Centres of Excellence are schools with expertise and outstanding practice in their specialist areas. They have a proven track record of securing improved outcomes for young people and all of the support they offer is free (funding has been provided by Yorkshire Sport Foundation).

Sessions listed here will demonstrate expertise through workshops and observations and share resources during half or whole day training. New support is being developed all the time so check back regularly for the most up to date information.

Current Centres of Excellence in South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire are:

Birkby Infants School – Kirklees
Grove Lea Primary School – Wakefield
Shelley College – Huddersfield
Thorner CoE Primary Academy – Leeds
Crags Community School – Rotherham
Hunters Bar Primary School – Sheffield
Green Lane Primary Academy – Leeds
Malin Bridge Primary School – Sheffield
Newhall Park Primary School – Bradford
Aston Fence Primary School – Rotherham
Ryecroft Primary Academy – Bradford

If you believe that your school can demonstrate outstanding innovation or practice in a specific area of PE or sport, read our online resource and complete the application form.

Benefits of becoming a Centre of Excellence include:

  • Community engagement across Yorkshire

  • Recognition in national and local publications and press
