Alternative Provision Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin

At CrossFit Shropshire Alternative Provision Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, we pride ourselves on creating an environment which supports the needs of young people who find different aspects of school challenging

Our two programmes include:


Our EMPOWER programme is designed for students who struggle to attend school due to anxiety and other school based avoidance issues. We support students who may also struggle to access a full curiculum offer. We support students in building resilience through mindfulness practices, while ensuring they develop essential skills in both English and Maths. Led by a qualified mental health specialist and an experienced qualified teacher, our programme addresses all aspects of student development. This enables them to increase their attendance at school and access a full curriculum.


Our STRIVE programme harnesses the power of exercise to engage students in their learning and behaviour in school. By combining CrossFit with mentoring, we help students refocus their behaviour and attitude in school. Additionally, qualified teachers lead and deliver Maths and English teaching to ensure students stay on track academically. Participants have full access to a fully equipped CrossFit gym, supervised by certified coaches. Our aim is to ensure all students have the chance to reach their full potential.
