Sport and Physical Activity Opportunities

Forrester High School Extra Curricular Programme

There are a wide variety of clubs on offer which are open to everyone from S1-6 and are mainly an opportunity to have fun, participate in different activities and stay fit, although there is the opportunity to enter competitions and festivals for some sports. Where possible, the clubs also have links with sports clubs in the local community, providing opportunities to participate beyond school as well.

Joining an extra curricular club couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is have a look at the extra curricular programme and see what activities you wish to participate in.  Book online at Activity detail (

The programme is FREE to participate but you must sign up.

Volunteer with Active Schools!

We are recruiting volunteers in a variety of roles to help us provide as many opportunities as possible for children to take part in sport and physical activity! We will provide full training and support. If you want to find out more please contact me or view the opportunities and support provided below.

Volunteer Opportunities

Coaches and Assistant Coaches (1 to 2 hours per week)

Active Schools is completely free to all children and we need support from volunteers to help encourage children to be more active, more often. Sport and Physical Activity is really important to children’s health and wellbeing and we offer opportunities for children to get active before school, lunchtimes and after school. There may also be an opportunity for some delivery in curriculum time.

All training and support will be provided. If you would prefer to assist or pair up with another volunteer we can arrange this.  If you already have expertise in a particular sport or activity and would like to offer this please also get in touch. A PVG (Disclosure Scotland Check will be required if volunteering directly with children)


Community Champions (1 to 2 hours per week approx)

Working together with the schools and SHE Scotland, we are setting up agroup of parents who are able to provide feedback on current sport and physical activity provision and how we can reach those who do not normally take part in sport and physical activity.

Including everyone is an important value for us and we know that girls and women, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities are under represented in sport and physical activity opportunities. We are therefore particularly keen to engage those within these groups to work with us to reduce and remove barriers and increase access for all .

This role can include promoting sport and physical activity, helping people to get started and/ or delivering activities or events. The role will be flexible depending on what you think is the most important areas for us to focus on to shape sport and physical activity opportunities in the community.
