Welcome to Gipping Valley & Thurston School Sports Partnership.

I am the Sports Partneship Manager and School Games organiser
for the Gipping Valley and Thurston Sports Partnership based
at Thurston Sixth Form in Beyton and have been working within
school sport in Suffolk for the last 15 years.

My aim is ensure that high quality physical education and sport
stays at the heart of school life in the 40 schools that I work

We offer an extensive and broad competition programme within and
between schools, involving all pupils with the support of our
workforce such as young leaders and volunteers. The primary
sports premium has allowed us to offer support during Physical
education, extra curricular opportunities and workshops.
