We are delighted to announce that we have sponsored Leafield Athletic FC Under 9s, a local football club in Solihull. This is part of our commitment to the enrichment of children across the West Midlands, both educationally and athletically.
There are many benefits to children participating in sport. Smart 11+ Tuition wants to challenge the myth that being academic comes at the expense of being sporty. Grammar schools place a high level of importance on PE and extra curricular sport too. This partnership with Leafield Athletic FC Under 9s allows us to support a wider range of young people in keeping up their physical health, something all the more important during a very difficult period for young people.
Furthermore, children benefit greatly from the social aspect of participating in sport. Teamsmanship, developing relationships with coaches and learning about the joy that comes with participation are really important in the psychological development of children. We also know the benefits that come with being able to build bonds and friendships with peers from different backgrounds too.
Sport at Grammar School
As we mentioned above, all of the grammar schools in Birmingham have exceptional sporting facilities for their students. From state of the art indoor sports halls where sports from five-a-side football, badminton and basketball can take place, to immaculate pitches for rugby and football, it truly is a great place to be able to do physical education classes. Read more about the facilities at all of the grammar schools in Birmingham in our Guide to Birmingham Grammar Schools.
All that’s left to say is good luck this season Leafield Athletic FC Under 9s! Play your socks off!
