Greenhouse programmes give priority to healthy development and are carefully designed and delivered by inspirational coaches to be truly inclusive. With safeguarding and health and safety embedded into the culture of our organisation, we are able to deliver a safe and positive experience of sport for all.

Our programme model provides a positive and inclusive introduction to sport, physical activity and the contribution to well-being for all children.

Greenhouse Coaches also provide:

  • At least 4 lunch clubs per week, giving participants an opportunity to be active in a fun environment. These sessions can be focused on certain students or age groups on each day.
  • 5 hours of breakfast and after-school clubs which provide an opportunity to develop the participants’ technical skills further. There is a focus on competitive opportunities both within and outside of the school.
  • STEP delivery as well as sport for development. Participants begin to show commitment to the programme and develop the relationship with the coach. Being more active, the participants develop better physical and mental well-being.
  • Up to 5 hours of active and fun sessions each day for up 6-8 weeks of the school holidays. There will be opportunities to experience other sports delivered by secondary programme specialist coaches, attend competitions, festivals and enrichment activities. This provides a positive experience during the holidays when some students can be distracted by negative activities and behaviours, especially if parents have to be at work.
  • Opportunity to contribute to the success of your OFSTED inspection.
  • Exclusive opportunities with our corporate partners.
