About Us

The Elms Sport in Schools (ESS) began in 2004 with a Saturday morning football and tennis programme. From just 30 children and 4 coaches to 22,500 children in over 120 schools and 80+ coaches!

Based in Middlesex, the company covers London and the Home Counties delivering high quality PE lessons, extra curricula, structured lunch-time play, CPD and holiday camps.

The Elms Tennis Club in Stanmore now coaches tennis to the highest number of children in the county, with exit routes and direction given to schools, parents and children.

ESS take pride in keeping children active, challenging them to their highest possible potential and above all encouraging them to enjoy participating in sport. No child will be left out and we believe that providing opportunities and instilling confidence in children throughout primary school will prepare and mould them as they enter secondary school.

Ashfield Junior School

“My daughter, Blossom, attends the football course at Ashfield Junior School and absolutely loves it.

My husband and I are completely detached from the world of football and this is giving Blossom a whole new experience within her world.

The coaches (Ricky and Marc) are absolutely lovely – so encouraging and really make Blossom feel like she can do it!”
