About us

The Gateshead Schools Sport Partnership co-ordinates activities and facilitates collaboration amongst our schools, their clusters and key partners. We have been raising achievement across Gateshead through high quality PE and school sport since our inception in 2001. In this time we have built an excellent reputation locally, sub regionally, regionally and nationally as a highly innovative and effective partnership.

Our Mission

We strive to build an active and healthy future for all young people in Gateshead through the provision of high quality PE, school sport and physical activity.

We share a clear, common purpose with you to do the very best for Gateshead young people, their families and their communities. Our passion and enthusiasm lies in our undying desire to make a real difference to the lives of the young people in Gateshead both in and through PE and school sport and ensure they all realise their true potential.

Our History

We have significant experience of teaching, learning and managing high quality PE and school sport, training and professional development for teachers, ASL's and young leaders. Within the context of PE and school sport we have significant and extensive local knowledge of schools and their staff.

The Gateshead School Sport Partnership (GSSP) has a reputation for the high quality delivery of service level agreements (SLA's) and continuous service improvement. Since the introduction of the original GSSP SLA in academic year 2011/2012, we have seen primary school affiliation levels increase each year.

We now have a primary school affiliation of almost 100% within Gateshead and we continue to grow through expanding our services, resulting in schools outside the borough also accessing our SLA. This is a clear indication of our consistent high quality delivery and continual evolution to ensure we meet the needs of our local schools.
