James Latham - PE Lead

Ever since finishing University with a BA Honours degree in Sports & Exercise Science and Business Management, I have been involved with young people in sport and education.

During my journey to where I am now, I have gained many coaching badges and have completed my Level 5 in Primary School Physical Education Specialism. This has given me the tools and understanding to raise the profile of PE and sport across Excelsior MAT.

Part of my role is to increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE & sport, as well as engaging children in regular activity, broadening their experience and increasing participation in competitive sport.

I have represented my country twice, in Spain, as part of the England Lionhearts Rugby League and often use this to inspire our children work hard and strive for success.

I am passionate about being part of Excelsior MAT and excited about what the future has to bring. I enjoy being a positive role model for young children and seeing them develop and flourish within my care.
