Leeds Gymnastics Club are committed to using our expertise to serve the wider community and we currently work with schools across the Leeds and York areas.

Our school partners

Gymnastics is a unique sport, and for many teachers and schools, it is an area of PE that they are actively seeking to develop. At Leeds Gymnastics Club we are committed to using our expertise to serve the wider community, and we currently work with schools across the Leeds and York areas in a variety of ways to offer children the best possible opportunities in our sport.


Curriculum PE coaching

We have active partnerships with a range of primary and secondary schools around the Leeds and York areas; delivering tailored schemes of gymnastics lessons during the school day. We work with children of all ages and abilities and design our sessions according to their needs; ranging from larger groups preparing for local competitions or performances, to smaller groups of children with special educational needs.

The wellbeing of coaches and children alike in the school environment is key, and we adhere to official British Gymnastics ratio guidelines to ensure that we are providing a challenging but safe environment at all times.

Bespoke CDP/Q&A: Gymnastics workshops

We encourage members of staff to observe or participate in our gymnastics sessions at their schools, but we also offer teacher-specific gymnastics workshops to schools who wish to lead their PE sessions independently in the future. Our coaches visit schools during their staff training time, and lead fun informative sessions for staff based delivering a range of activities that target different skills, gaining confidence teaching different apparatus, and how to identify Gifted & Talented children.

Our school partners are also always encouraged to visit us here at Leeds Gymnastics Club at the end of a block of sessions; so that the gymnasts can showcase all their skills in a purpose-built gymnastics facility.

This curriculum has been built from Leeds Gymnastics Club’s expertise in gymnastics progression and is based on acquiring and developing physical movement skills in accordance with the PE national curriculum. Gymnastics is known globally as a ‘foundation sport’ meaning that it provides a base for all physical movement to be built upon, allowing for continual progression both in gymnastics and other sports.

Curriculum programme

‘The unit was highly successful and enjoyable, with pupils demonstrating clear progress. The curriculum document attached was most helpful in the planning and the ‘Age Related Expectations’ outlining the key skills required in each focus area was clear and easy to follow, which enabled clear structure and progression in the lessons.
The ‘Resources’ section was excellent and highly beneficial to me. Due to not being a gymnastics specialist, the Dropbox folder containing video demonstrations of each skill enabled me to provide quality demonstrations and key teaching points.’

After school classes

It was an absolute pleasure to see how much the students have progressed but also the coach Liam (I think that was his name) he was very nurturing and the students respond really well to him. He was excellent!’
John Smeaton Academy 

I left inexperienced students at the beginning of the session and came back one hour later to find what I woud have sworn were experienced gymnasts.’

What people say about Leeds Gymnastics Club

Outstanding Gymnastics Club! Fantastic Staff, Amazing Volunteers and Fabulous Gymnasts, but then I’m a bit biased, I’ve been a member since I was 5 years old.
J. Halkier

“I am visually impaired and I went to the adults class for the first time unsure if my disability would hold me back, it didn’t, and that’s due to the amazing support I got from the excellent coaches and fellow gymnasts! Great facilities and just a great thing to be a part of!”

W. Stafford

“I love doing gymnastics at this club:) Always seem to keep a smile on my face even when I’m in pain and I’ve met some new good friends here.”
