Primary Membership, Benefits and Pricing

I've got questions about membership

Active Plus Membership

from £1100 (pro rata)

This price includes one standard sports session a week (please see activities offered) for the whole academic year. The one hour sessions can be anytime between 8am and 5pm (in curricular or extra curricular).

The number of sessions can be increased to meet your requirements at an additional cost. All aspects of your sporting provision are managed by Active Schools staff.

All you need to do is choose how many sessions a week you want and what sports or activities you want each half term. Everything else such as the sourcing of coaches, paying invoices, finding cover for coach illness etc will be managed on your behalf.


Active Membership

from £350 (pro rata)

Your school will receive the regular membership benefits but you will manage your own sports/activities and providers.
