Welcome to Gateshead SSP

The Gateshead School Sport Partnership co-ordinate activites and facilitate collaboration amongst our schools, their clusters and key partners.

Our mission is to build an active and healthy future for all young people through the provision of high quality PE, school sport and physical activity. We will focus our attentions on clear outcomes for our children and young people.
