I am one of the Directors of The Lancaster & Heysham School Sports Network (LHSSN) Community Interest Company (CIC).

Health and sport have always been a passion of mine. After starting in the leisure industry as a L3 Advanced fitness instructor, personal trainer and gym manager whilst coaching (and playing) in my spare time; gaining a degree; volunteering; and later working in the local council's Sports Development department.
Next came a career in School Sport with The Youth Sport Trust: throughout the years covering Competition Manager, Partnership Development Manager and now in the current guise of School Games Organiser (SGO) based at Our Lady's Catholic College.

Similarly, if you'd like your school to sign up to LHSSN, or we would like to get involved in anything we offer please contact us.
I have gained qualifications and industry awards throughout this time including, most recently (September 2018), a Masters in Exercise and Health, building on my previous degree and professional experiences. A particular focus was young people's health and their perspectives, behaviours and motivations. Other qualifications include: Level 3 Advanced Trainer, Level 2 Handball and Multiskills, various Level 1's, sports leaders, Lancashire training, and industry awards.
Delivering training or presenting to colleagues, university and college students, or even children as young as 5, is part of the day-to-day role, as is an extensive knowledge of Government initiatives relating to PE and health, and many sporting competitions including adapted formats.
Delivering diverse activities such as teacher training, sport specific, or even cross-curricular activities combining reading and PE for KS1.
All of which mean between myself, Tim, and our many partners, there's very little we can't help you with either administratively or practically. If there's something you need, just ask!
Examples of support available: Competitions, Inclusion, General School Games, Change4life, Health, 30 Active minutes, administration and reporting within school sport. Or look at providing an SSCO type role should groups of schools want this as an additional offer (fees would vary depending on time/numbers).
We are very much about improving opportunities and continuing a partnership or network for the benefit of all involved!
