Where do our female Olympians come from?

03 Aug 16

This week Tanni was interviewed by The Times about the story of the make-up of the British Team.  A significant proportion come from the Independent sector? Why is this?  Tanni believes that it is about the value that is placed on sport and physical activity (and while there is amazing state school provision out there), in the Independent sector they also have fully trained PE teachers from the youngest ages.  Access to really high quality faciliites also help (where they share between the lwer and upper schools).  While it is great for those who made the team, jsut think how well we could do if all schools had the same support.  One to ponder in the next four year cycle
