Local junior rugby teams had the honour of trotting out onto the Kingsholm pitch on Saturday morning, with over 400 young players representing their local clubs in the finals of the Wooden Spoon Charity Floodlit Tournament.
Located in the heart of the south stand at Gloucester Rugby's Kingsholm Stadium the 'Try centre' is home to numerous Community Education programmes. It is a dedicated education centre that utilises the environment and medium of sport to help children and young people.
The core objective is to develop young peoples' confidence and motivation to learn. This is achieved by focusing on a skills-based approach to engage students through a wide range of multi-sensory approaches instilling a sense of fun, enthusiasm and positivity for learning.
The 'Try Centre' is open to and will benefit students of all levels of ability. Lessons can support learning across many curriculum areas including; Primary and Secondary - Maths, English, History, Geography, Citizenship, ICT, Sport, Art and Design.
We offer targeted intervention programmes that are designed to assist schools with raising attainment levels. Initiatives that support students who maybe dis-engaging from learning and education, or equally students who may lack confidence or have low self-esteem, to engage with these activities to promote the qualities of resilience, fun, increased self-esteem and a more engaged child to learning and education.
We offer a set range of workshops, but can also cater for bespoke packages. The Community department aim to keep fees to a minimum, but there are costs associated with many courses. (Schools may consider subsidising the costs by way of using the pupil premium).
