Active Schools Future Leaders

The Active Schools Future Leaders Programme aims to teach leadership skills to Young People across East Lothian and build the foundations of a leadership pathway through school and beyond.

Your Active Schools Coordinator will be your mentor and support you throughout your leadership journey.

The Programme is designed to develop transferable skills for young leaders and enable other children to be more active and participate in a variety of fun games and activities.

The Future Leaders Booklet at the foot of this page provides a basic framework for the Future Leaders Programme, however there is flexibility for each young person to adapt and tailor the journey with their Active Schools Coordinator as required.

Active Schools @ Ross High School

Ross High School has offered lots of different sports and physical activities over the last few years, from Archery to Weightlifting, and most things in between.

We encourage our pupils to try new and as varied activities as possible.

We aim to provide lots of opportunities to make new friends and different experiences.

With strong links with local sports clubs such as the Ross High Hockey and Rugby clubs, Tranent Colts FC, the Loch Centre and not to mention with East Lothian Council Sports Development.
We work closely with the Tranent Community Sports Hub as it establishes itself.

We believe that everyone should be able to participate and enjoy sport and physical activity whoever they are and whatever their background.

Cost should never stop your child participating in sport and physical activity. If you are worried or concerned about your ability to cover the cost related to any activity your child would like to take part in, please contact Mark Urwin to discuss in complete confidence. Any assistance is provided confidentially so that it is not obvious to other individuals that your child is receiving this support.

We are always looking to expand our range of activities, and as such are keen to meet with new volunteers, coaches and clubs.  By working together, we hope to provide more opportunities for more of our local pupils.  Currently our Tennis, Netabll and Golf clubs are beginning to establish themselves, and are extremely keen to hear from people how can help support them.

As restrictions ease we are slowly bring back some of our activites.  Rugby, Hockey & Football are returing slowly, with Cricket on the horizon too.
