Rampworx continued their ongoing health and sports development project with a 6 week project in partnership with Oldershaw School, Wallasey, Wirral.

The project, part of twelve month programme funded by the NHS, is designed to address a range of health issues and behaviours that they were particularly vulnerable to; including poor diet, obesity, mental health and lack of exercise.

In addition to the weekly 2 hours of extreme sports coaching, the school offered weekly lessons on improving their health and behaviour with a structured programme of physical activity and healthy lifestyle education.

Oldershaw Academy is based in Liscard, Wallasey. A mixed school, which has been established for over 90 years, caters for over 1000 pupils largely from the deprived areas, of  Seacombe, Liscard, Moreton, Birkenhead and Leasowe.

This project, with the help of Head of PE, Jason Gilbert targeted a group of 40 young people who, ordinarily, would not participate in sport and physical activity.

Overall the project was a fantastic success with 40 school children getting involved and gaining a whole host of useful skills and knowledge about how to live healthier lives with practical and meaningful ways to implement it. They even enjoyed a 2 hour coaching session all to themselves at our very own Skatepark, in Aintree.

Well done to everyone who got involved and thanks to the staff at Oldershaw for helping us to deliver the project.

The next sports and health project is due to start on the 21st April at the University Academy Birkenhead.
