West Lancashire Sport Partnership
In the summer of 2016, Tarleton Academy became the host school for West Lancashire Sport Partnership (previously the West Lancashire School Sport Partnership from 2005-2017). The school acts as a host through partnership administration, finance, the provision of facilities, equipment storage etc. Tarleton Academy hosts partnership events and competitions for primary schools throughout the academic year.
''West Lancashire Sport Partnership (WLSP) is an education based organisation committed to providing services to primary, secondary and special schools that meet the needs of all young people.
The management and delivery team consists of over 30 experienced and specialised staff. The team are motivated and committed to ensuring that young people within our programmes access the very best high quality provision that inspires the next generation.
WLSP programmes are designed and delivered in order to enable young people to take part in PE, sport and physical activity in a safe and enjoyable environment across the borough.''
School Swimming and Endeavour Swimming
West Lancashire Sport Partnership has run primary school swimming lessons at Tarleton Academy for many years. The Endeavour Swimming programme, launched at the start of the TA-WLSP partnership, is designed to build on that curriculum provision to maintain the teacher-swimmer relationship from school swimming, with Endeavour Swimming delivered by the swimming specialists who teach many of the children during the school day.
Endeavour Swimming is set-up and run by Tarleton Academy, delivered by WLSP swimming specialists, in turn providing high quality swimming lessons to the community.
