About Us

The School Sports network has been set up to support local schools and help to develop opportunities for all young people to experience worthwile, enjoyable and quality PE and School Sports. Building on from the successes of the School Sports Partnership we aim to continue to link together schools so as to enhance and increase opportunities for all. By this collaborative approach more will be made possible as the sum of the whole is greater than the units working apart.

Primary Schools

All Primary Schools now receive Sports Premium Funding from the Government.

The GSSN affiliated schools have chosen to utilise a percentage of this to support the continued running and delivery of the Gloucester School Sport Network.

We provide our schools with:

  • Continued professional Development
  • Specialist Curriculum Support
  • A year round calendar of festivals, shows and competition and participation events
Higher Education

Gloucestershire College play a major role in supporting the GSSN. They have staff who coordinate the training and deployment of students to support the devlopment of sports opportunities across all schools. We value this organisation as a leading partner for our network.

Further Education

The University of Gloucestershire have made a commitment to support the School Sports Network. They will provide placement Sports Education Degree students for each secondary school to work alongside the school games coordinator. The Events Team will also provide additional expertise and staff to support the extended schools competition which will become a major element to the school games
