Stride Active is a forward-thinking organisation. We want all young people to have the opportunity to be physically active. As experts in in PE, school sport and physical activity, we advocate the benefits of these to young people. It is our belief that if we can create the right experiences for children, they will remain active throughout adulthood. This will enable everyone to benefit physically, mentally and socially in the future.
Stride Active is a not-for-profit organisation; our work is divided through two organisational ‘arms’ – Whitecross School and Stride Active Community Interest Company (CIC). We are hosted by Whitecross High School, but operate independently to support schools and organisations across Herefordshire and beyond. We have over 14 years’ experience in sharing our PE expertise with schools. We do this through a range of CPD and training opportunities. Alongside this, we also specialise in physical activity, health and wellbeing through the CIC. All of our work aims to address rising obesity and inactivity rates in children.
At Green Spider, we have worked with Stride Active on a variety of projects now and it has always been a pleasure. The ideas and initiatives that they come up with are second to none and they are always there throughout to see it all through.Ebony Ball, Centre Manager
