The A-Z of School Improvement Through PE and Sport, available now for £4.79

Edited by our Head of Sport, Shaun Dowling, and David Woods CBE.

The A-Z of School Improvement through Sport and PE outlines how schools can utilise physical activity to bring out the best in their pupils and staff alike. 

  • Through case studies, discussions, and ‘butterflies’ the book demonstrates how key principles in PE and Sport can be utilised within the greater school improvement and aims to make more than general philosophical links between sport and education.
  • Contributors include Sir Clive Woodward, UK Sport Chief Exec Liz Nicholl OBE, Kevin Barton and Matt Pauling of the Youth Sport Trust, Julie Whelan, CEO of the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust, Kate Percy, author of ‘Go Faster Food for Kids’ and our Sports Ambassadors, Bonita Norris and Alex Danson.

'Physical educationists will find the book stimulating as it provides a number of improvement strategies that successful schools are using. It is not a book to be read from beginning to end; it is a book to be ‘dipped into’, as and when, if only to discover what is discussed under ‘Z’! It deserves to be in the library of all PE departments, and included on the reading list of university PE courses.'
