About the Organisation

Clubs for Schools is an EdTech hub for clubs that transforms the manner in which schools organise their extracurricular club provision.

Whereas schools might purchase business systems solutions from software companies, and sports and other activity provision from coaches and small coaching organisations, neither can properly solve the challenge faced by schools, who are left with excessive overheads a barrage of sales calls from providers.

Instead, Clubs for Schools comes alongside both schools and providers, combining expert software developers with extracurricular club expertise. This enables schools to eliminate the overheads associated with managing extracurricular clubs while retaining control, and for coaches and small coaching organisations to automate their own process with similar overhead reduction benefits to themselves and improvements in the service they provide to schools.

Club for Schools Mission

To support more kids to be happier, healthier and more successful as a result of more and better extracurricular clubs.

They do this by working with schools, coaches and small coaching organisations who share their energy and passion for their mission, and serve them by using their own expertise to automate away overheads to simplify their lives.

Club for Schools plan

To invest in people and software so that they can grow to serve at least 1,000 schools and 3,000 coaches or club leaders by 2021.

Clubs for Schools offers challenging fun, laughter and work with energetic people, schools and coaches who want to be successful by making a difference to young people’s lives. If you feel as strongly as they do about living a more fulfilling and healthy life then this could be the perfect environment for you to work in.
