SPORTS COLLEGE

Crown Hills Sports College.

Crown Hills is a nationally-recognised Sports College that targets the heart of its community, both geographically and physically, with activities that promote and encourage the pursuit of health and well-being as well as sporting excellence. The Sports College staff is committed to creating a rich diet of opportunities and events which, it is hoped, will benefit all age groups following the curriculum, but equally those user groups outside the normal college day. We also offer fully inclusive activities as well as targeted work for the benefit of all students. In partnership with the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) we are delighted to be moving into a new sporting facility which we are confident will offer us even more opportunities, including the enhancement of cricketing standards.

We are also a hub-site for the Leicester City School Sport Partnership who are committed to offering competition, festivals and training for the benefit of all students and staff in the Primary Sector. The sports specialism has influenced the BSF project and, as a result of the above partnership, in October 2013 we moved into our new facility sporting six-lane cricket nets as well as eight badminton courts, and a Wellness Fitness Suite.

An established Academy for Student Leadership already operates within the college and enjoys local and regional recognition for its good work in all levels of competition.

Crown Hills is one of only fifty Health and Well-Being centres in the country. Its reputation is widely acknowledged for its targeted work with staff, students and the wider community.

The college is committed to raising whole-school attainment and, as a consequence, has created a staffing structure that impacts on student voice, leadership and volunteering, academic mentoring, health mentoring and the core subjects.

Staffing structure consists of:

Doug Keast, Director of Sport/Assistant Principal

Sarah Lansdowne/Dan Hewins, School Sport Development Managers

Jamie Reynolds, Sports Development Officer

Stephanie Magee, School Sport Champion/Leadership and Volunteering
