Performance Education in Sport Programme (PES)

We are currently taking nominations for students who would like to be part of the PES programme for this year.  The programme is run in conjunction with Uppingham School and aims to support and develop our aspiring athletes and help them to maximise their sporting potential.

Selection Criteria

The selection criteria are based on the athlete’s past, current and future sporting potential. Specifically an athlete on the PES programme must clearly demonstrate that he or she can:

  • Compete at a high standard in their chosen sport. It is expected that the athlete will be at least County standard.
  • Be a positive role model on and off the sports pitch, and uphold Uppingham Community College’s values.
  • Demonstrate a commitment to their chosen sport which is above and beyond what is expected.
  • Take responsibility, be aspirational in outlook and demonstrate strong leadership skills or leadership potential.
  • Demonstrate good training habits and a strong desire to compete.

The Workshops

The PES Workshops are delivered by a member of PE staff or an external coach / athlete.  Each workshop lasts one hour and will take place on a Wednesday evening 7pm to 8pm in the Uppingham School Sports Centre Hospitality Suite. The dates of the workshops are:

·        Wednesday 22nd November

·        Wednesday 24th January

If you would like to be considered for the PES programme please contact a member of the PE department or email Mr Lewin at Lewin_R@ucc.rutland.sch.uk
