It is our great pleasure to announce the release of a new book examining the teaching and provision of physical education and sport in independent schools.

Editor Malcolm Tozer has assembled a stellar line-up of contributors to this 300-page book, which will make essential reading for headteachers, directors of sport and PE teachers.

The book traces the origins and history of physical education teaching in our schools, examines the current ‘state of play’ and takes on advice from leading sportspeople and educators on developments for the future.

Some of those to contribute include Olympic triple jump and world-record holder Jonathan Edwards, rugby World Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward and 11-time Paralympic champion Baroness Grey-Thompson. The foreword is written by HRH The Princess Royal.

The book also includes a full record of independent school pupils who have represented their country between 2000-2012.
