The Witchford School Sports Partnership has been in existence since September 2004 and is now in its eighth year. The partnership is based at Witchford Village College and consists of 63 primary, secondary and special schools across east Cambridgeshire and Fenland. Our main role is to engage children and young people in high quality Physical Education and sporting activities through a variety of means in school and in the community which ultimately supports achievement and attainment across the curriculum. Our key work strands include:
