Following us reaching our fundraising target of £15,000, the installation of the pupils new Parkour Circuit it now underway!
Parkour is an attractive discipline because there is no right or wrong way to carry out a move. Pupils will be free to use their imagination and be as creative as they wish about the way in which they challenge themselves. It is an extremely physical sport and attractive to young people, engaging them in exercise in a non-traditional way.
