Schools & Education


“Boxing seems to be the one that focuses them; it really improves their social skills. As soon as they’re put onto the boxing intervention their attendance will go up; they’re motivated to come in every day to get on to the programme the next week."

Paul Halfpenny

teacher, Hunters Hill College


our schools & education programme

We create positive change and genuine impact by engaging young people as part of an extra-curricular 6 or 12-week Boxing Award Programme. All our programmes are delivered by professional qualified coaches and staff. 


Young people will work towards a Boxing Award, which is recognised through England Boxing, which can be delivered as part of a BTEC, GCSE or DofE Award. 


The boxing sessions can be delivered on site, or alternatively, at Pat Benson Boxing Academy. We can also offer sessions throughout the day or after school.  


through our schools & education programme, we have worked with over 350 8-16 year olds across birmingham, whilst delivering over 250 hours of boxing to support schools in the development of happier, fitter and healthier children.


Intervention & Behaviour Management

Our qualified coaches have worked with young people experiencing disengagement from the education system, anti-social behaviour, involvement in crime or being on the periphery of joining gangs. 


Our boxing and physical intervention model focuses on managing challenging behaviours and motivating young people to make positive changes in all areas of their lives. Boxing and physical exercise gives young people the discipline and engagement they need to combat disruptive elements that are not only experienced in the school environment, but also in the wider community. 


Young people will learn to communicate better, improve self-discipline, develop self-awareness, and learn conflict resolution skills through their involvement with our schools and education programme. 

Health & Wellbeing 


An awareness and improvement of health, fitness and lifestyle are fundamental to concentration levels, school attainment, self-belief, positive choices and routines later in life. Our staff tackle rising obesity levels and health inequalities, both physically and mentally.

Pad routines and punching combinations will improve communication, team work, problem solving, as well as balance and movement whilst developing basic and advanced motor skills.

Bradley SAVAGE
HEAD OF COACHING at pat benson


I have been leading our schools and education programme for the last 7 years, operating all over Birmingham and the Solihull area. I have worked with mainstream schools, PRU Centres and colleges, to deliver our bespoke 12-week Boxing Award Programme. Over these 7 years, I have seen young people develop confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth, all whilst developing a passion for fitness and boxing. At Pat Benson Community Sports Foundation we are directly changing young lives across the city and tackling public health concerns in children, whilst supporting them to be the best versions of themselves.
