Welcome to Prestonpans Active Schools


Our aim is to offer school-aged children opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity, while promoting active, healthy lifestyles throughout their school years and into adulthood. 

We achieve this with the support of a network of volunteers, coaches, parents, carers and teachers who deliver extra-curricular sport and physical activity before and after school, during break and lunch times, and across the wider community.

For activity bookings and to learn more about sport and activities that are available for Primary School children from Prestonpans, Longniddry, Cockenzie & Port Seton, please visit our Online Booking Page.


Free Access to Paid Active East Lothian Activities

Active Schools activities are free to all. Active East Lothian activities will have a fee, however, they are free to children who are care experienced, young carers, and/or registered for free school meals with East Lothian Council. All support is delivered confidentially.

To confirm you qualify and to receive your promo code for free access to paid activities, please email Stewart Sands, Active Schools Coordinator at Your promo code should be used when booking Active East Lothian activities online at checkout. If you have previously received a promo code, this is still valid and can be used for new bookings.

Free School Meals application forms are available to download at or contact East Lothian Council by email at or by phone at 01620 827 827.



We aim to make all of our activities inclusive to all and understand that everyone has differing needs and requirements. We will try to make reasonable adjustments where possible and will always be open to engaging with pupils and parents/carers to ensure this happens.

In our booking form we will ask you a few questions to share any information that will help us provide any additional support.
