Sport Plays a Key Role in Developing Life Skills

Teamwork, communication, testing ourselves to the limit, maintaining concentration and stamina are all important. It is also essential in keeping young bodies fit and healthy as they grow. The skills developed at an early age can provide each individual with the ability to stay fit and healthy throughout life.

To help support learning, we have a wide range of Sports Ambassadors who share their expertise and inspiring stories with the pupils. Our Sports Ambassadors are built of LMS alumni and other professional sportspeople who have found success after leaving school. Find out more via the link below.
