Back to School, Back to Fitness

Since the COVID-19 lockdown, most of us have spent more time indoors and finding our fitness levels decreasing including the students we work with. After the full return to school in September, many colleagues and other school personnel have noticed a lack of fitness within their students. These findings have also been supported by Sport England, who provide funding for lots of sporting opportunities and they revealed that children’s activity levels have fallen during the pandemic.

One school in Plymouth with the support of the Plymouth School Sports Partnership (PSSP) decided to take a proactive approach by peddle starting their student’s activity levels back to normal and what better way to increase fitness and resilience in a COVID safe environment than mountain biking!

These sessions were part of the Plymouth High School for Girls core physical education lessons. The students took part in weekly progressive rides, building their fitness, confidence and skill levels. With numerous rides on different terrain that cater for all ability levels Plymbridge is a fantastic location.

The PSSP own and maintain a fleet of bikes, stored at Plymbridge that subscribing Secondary schools can book free of charge as part of our Core Offer.
