School Sport

The North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership (NWLSSP) was formed in 2005 as part of the Government's plan to create 450 SSPs across England. The Castle Rock School in Coalville has been our host from the very beginning and continues to be the base for all of the NWLSSP team today.

The NWLSSP currently has 43 member schools of which 37 are Primary Schools, 5 Secondary Schools and 1 is a Special School. All of the schools buy into the NWLSSP on an annual basis in return for various services that you can find out on our website
