We believe in nurturing and developing talent, supporting those wanting to gain additional qualifications and skills in the work place, our team work with staff guiding them towards the management side of the company, thus fulfilling career pathways for exceptional staff.

Since the formation of the company in 2011 SCS have grown rapidly, building strong relations with a number of schools across the Essex and Suffolk region. SCS prides itself in its ultimate unique selling point which is the level of coaching quality in each core sport. Within the SCS team there are coaches who specialize in sports across the board such as Cricket, Rugby and Football.


Building children’s confidence through sport is a wonderful experience, which SCS prides itself in doing successfully. When delivering various sporting sessions we know that each child has a different character and confidence level. Because of this our coaching team has learned to recognise each children individual needs and look to coach them in an appropriate age/standard level whilst maintaining fun sessions. This promotes confidence to all participants, leaving them feeling as members of the team and build confidence in themselves and their abilities.


This is key to our coaching delivery across all our activities and programmes which we offer, such as PE and after school clubs. The environment in which we deliver our sessions ensures positivity in abundance, there is plenty of encouragement to build the children’s enthusiasm and ultimately this leads to a greater experience. Often its easy for children to give up on a practice because of lacking confidence in performing a drill we’ve set out, but they key for the SCS team is to be very positive to enable everyone involved to believe in themselves more and to “inspire children in sport“.

Team Play

This is fundamental in all of our activity programmes. Its a very satisfying feeling for a coach, and teacher, to see a number of individuals work together as a team and in union. When you work as a team whether it is in basketball, or football, you learn to know that it doesn’t just come down to the best player, its about a group completely working for each other giving the whole team the best chance to do well. Team play for us also ensures children are not isolated in practices which is key for individual development, and lastly it helps children deal with winning and losing.


Sport and physical education is fundamental to the early development of children, and young adults. Each and every skill learned during play time, physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people. Through the participation in sport and physical education, young people learn about the importance of key values such as:
• Honesty;
• Teamwork,
• Fair play;
• Respect for themselves and others; and
• Adherence to rules.

Very strong coaches with an abundance of knowledge, who know how to coach. The coaches engage really well with the players and the sessions are fun, bringing out the best in the players. The boys themselves are all very talented and playing some great football. I’ve taken my boys along a few times and they always have a great time. We look forward to going back soon. Thanks to everyone at more

SCS offers the most comprehensive training and coaching sessions I have ever seen. The coaching is tailored to developing football fundamentals and techniques. I took my son there for what I thought would be a one-off trial but we both love it so much that we have not missed a session. The coach-player connection is excellent! Highly more
