“This is a wonderful project which will increase participation in sports our students would not normally consider or have access to, in particular racket sports such as squash and tennis. Our 16 to 19 year olds are leading increasingly sedentary lifestyles and we strong feel that if they don’t play sports in this age group then they are far less likely to do so as adults. As well as developing their health, the project will develop their skills in the co-ordination, confidence, self-esteem and teamwork.”

Nick Smith, Deputy Principal, William Morris Sixth Form
