Leading the Way for Sport ( Published: 03/02/2016)

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded Sports Leadership Academy status for the inspiring work we do in the field of student sports leadership, becoming only the fifth school in the North West to receive such an accolade.

Sports Leaders UK present the Sports Leadership Academy Award to Whalley Range 11-18 High School in 2016

Mrs McLoone, Head of PE, Sports and Active lifestyles said:

Our committed team of Sports Leaders, from all year groups, work hard throughout the year to ensure that PE and physical activity remain a huge part of school life not only in our school, but in a range of Manchester primary and secondary schools.

Sports Leaders UK set up the leadership academy initiative, which is a scheme to reward and recognise some of its best approved assessment centres who go beyond the call of duty. Their Leadership Academies act as beacons of good practice to other schools and organisations in Manchester and the wider community. They not only deliver Sports Leaders UK awards and qualifications with high levels of success and enthusiasm, but by meeting the criteria, these organisations have a very positive impact on the local community with regards to increased voluntary hours, community placements and events.

Alan Brierley, Partnerships Manager at Sports Leaders UK commented:

Huge congratulations! This award isn’t a product of luck or fortune, but a result of the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of both staff and students.

The prestigious award was presented to the Academy Headteacher, PE staff, Sports Leaders and an invited audience at a special event held at the school in January 2016.
