Girls Active: Secondary

Girls Active is our commitment to fostering girls' participation in PE, sport, and physical activity. The programme aims to tackle the barriers girls experience and through cultivating a movement of girls and young women, empower them to take positive action through influencing, leading, and inspiring their peers.


What’s involved: Schools will receive a range of support including localised or virtual training, resources, plus role model and mentoring support. Participating schools commit to undertake a range of interventions with the girls in their school. See the full details in the programme guidance document found on this page.

Outcomes: Schools can benefit through an increased understanding of how physical activity positively contributes to all girls lives, increased participation from and relationship with pupils, and improved leaderships skills leading to an increase in volunteering within the school.

Young people participating will improve personal traits such as self-esteem, confidence, communication, creativity, and leadership. They will have an increased understanding of the relevance of POE, school sport and physical activity to their lives and will be empowered to contribute to the design and delivery of a relevant school sport experience.
