The Grange School is the Youth Sport Trust Lead Partner School for Leadership, Coaching and Volunteering in Dorset. Led by Daniel Moody and supported by the Youth Sport Trust, Active Dorset and the Dorset SGOs, the Dorset Leadership Programme has grown over the last three years to a point now where it's a key part of the PE and school sport offer in primary, middle and secondary schools in Dorset.

The programme consists of fully inclusive county wide leadership academies, sport specific leadership training, primary leadership academies for pupils in year 5 & 6, Step into Sport events and the Young Coach Academy aimed at providing level 1 and level 2 coaching qualifications for young people aged 16+. The programme offers training and deployment opportunities to over 1500 young people each year and support for schools to provide suitable leadership, coaching and volunteering pathways for all young people. For more information please contact your School Games Organiser.
