Sport in the Community

Sherwood Primary School has a strong reputation for excellent Sports Provision and success in the competitive School Sports arena. We work closely with Preston North End Community & Education Trust on a wide variety of initiatives to support and enhance our provision for children at School. We aim to inspire our children through Sport and recognise the positive impact that Sport can have on our children's confidence and aspirations. Our children are actively encouraged to explore Sporting opportunities outside School. Here are a variety of links if you are interested in exploring additional coaching outside school.
