Our mission is to build an active and healthy future for all young people through the provision of high quality PE, school sport and physical activity. We will focus our attentions on clear outcomes for our children and young people.

We aim to realise the benifits of involvement in high quality PE and school sport for the young people of Gateshead in life as well as sport. This involvement will lead to many positive outcomes.
