School Sports Partnership


The Corby, Oundle and Thrapston School Sports Partnership is responsible for organising inter-school competition, teacher training and support.

COTSSP provides a comprehensive Sainsbury’s School Games calendar, featuring a wide range of sports for pupils of all ages and abilities. In also supports the training and development of young people, through school sports crews, young leaders and sports apprenticeships. Additionally, COTSSP provides a range of support to schools and teachers through CPD, teacher release, and their Enhanced Schools package. We as a school have bought into the Partnerships Enhanced Package, which provides us with a specialist member of staff for half a day a week.

This member of staff supports PE coordinators in their role, as well as delivering curriculum mentoring for teachers and aiding the delivery of local and national initiatives. We believe that working in this way provides a sustainable legacy for the sports premium funding. It means that teachers will improve their practice and develop confidence in delivery of PE, rather than watching a coach deliver their lessons for them.
