The Berkshire Inspire Academy is our linked leadership programme that supports the delivery of our philosophy of an event for young people run by young people. The Berkshire Inspire Academy is a partnership programme between the Leadership and Coaching School (Theale Green), the Lead Inclusion School (Wexham) and Get Berkshire Active.

In 2012, Theale Green School in partnership with West Berkshire School Sport Network took on the Youth Sport Trust Lead in Leadership, Coaching & Volunteering (LCV) School role for Berkshire.

What is an LCV Lead School?

Leadership, Coaching and Volunteering (LCV) Lead Schools are members of a national network that use innovative approaches to drive individual and whole school improvement through leadership, coaching and volunteering.

Each Lead School is representative of its county and takes a partnership approach to delivery with local schools and organisations to develop inclusive pathways for young people to progress as leaders, coaches, officials and volunteers.

All LCV schools are provided with national networking and exclusive development opportunities to drive leadership and coaching forward across the country and to meet the needs of the young people locally.

We work in close partnership with the 7 other SGOs areas across the county as well as Get Berkshire Active and our Berkshire Local Organising Committee to plan and develop opportunities for all across the county.

For any other information on the LCV role please contact Maxine Smiles Cooke, West Berkshire School Sport Manager & Berkshire Inspire Academy Manager at Theale Green School via email:
