Get Active

The ‘Get Active’ programme at Whalley Range aims to encourage students to live a healthy, active lifestyle. We support this through extra curricular clubs, the curriculum, team sports, competitions, mindfulness, promotion and awareness and more.

The more active you are, the fitter you are and the more energy you have for everyday life.
