Waverley School, Birmingham

Waverley school has begun a boxing club to give girls the equal opportunity to take part in extra curricular activities, become aware of a healthy lifestyle, as well as having fun and gaining credits towards a recognised Boxing qualification. After school classes are delivered twice a week for Waverley School students to help build their self esteem as well as fitness.

Over 40 students have successfully completed the basics of boxing via the Preliminary Award and are now learning the Standard Award.

Students thoroughly enjoy staying active, learning new skills, and taking part in a sport which is usually considered to be mainly male dominated. ‘Waverley is committed to learning through Diversity’ and providing diverse opportunities to all its students.

The course has proved so popular that families in our children’s centre want to be involved. We are now in our second year of delivering the awards, with more and more of our students joining in and achieving their boxing potential.

A special awards ceremony will be held for the students who have successfully passed the awards, early next month. Look out for a future Olympic champion, we will keep you posted.
