PE and Sports Coaching Summer Conference 16–17 July 2020

Welcome to the Eighth Annual PE and Sports Coaching Conference, again based at the extensive facilities of Abingdon School. 

Through its timing, this event has always attracted a combination of teachers from a range of UK schools, as well as those working in British and International schools abroad. Its aim is to keep all teachers updated with current best practice in UK sports education. It will help them to prepare to deliver high quality sessions in the following school year, and also to improve their employability. 

There is a wide selection of courses, qualifications and seminars. It is hoped that this will provide something of interest to all teachers. The Conference atmosphere is relaxed, allowing teachers to network and share views and experiences in an appealing summer environment. Delegates may attend either or both of the two days.

For those visiting from afar, accommodation is available in the heart of Oxford University at St Hugh’s College. This is situated a short walk from the historic city centre, and free transport is provided each day to and from Abingdon School. This provides the opportunity for combining the Conference with the social and cultural possibilities of Oxford, including the Conference Dinner on the banks of the River Cherwell
