PE, Sport and Physical Activity Survey

In the summer term of the 2020/21 academic year, the Youth Sport Trust (YST) in partnership with Limitless, delivered a research project to explore young people’s attitudes to PE, school sport and physical activity in the independent school sector.

In total 1517 young people completed an online survey from across 17 different independent schools. 70% of the sample were girls, 26% of the sample were boys. The majority (67%) of respondents were white, followed by Asian (18%).

This report presents the findings of the research with a focus on the following:

  1. Understanding the key motivations, barriers, and attitudes towards physical activity of young people in the independent sector
  2. Exploring significant differences in the data between independent and state schools
  3. Consider how different demographic profiles impact on the data (e.g., gender)
