Active schools and East Lothian


Welcome to Prestonpans Active Schools

Our aim is to offer school-aged children opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity, while promoting active, healthy lifestyles throughout their school years and into adulthood. 

We achieve this with the support of a network of volunteers, coaches, parents, carers and teachers who deliver extra-curricular sport and physical activity before and after school, during break and lunch times, and across the wider community.

We're always looking for volunteers to help us bring more sport and activity to the local area. To learn more about volunteering with Active Schools, please email

We aim to make all of our activities inclusive to all and understand that everyone has differing needs and requirements. We will try to make reasonable adjustments where possible and will always be open to engaging with pupils and parents/carers to ensure this happens.

In our booking form we will ask you a few questions to share any information that will help us provide any additional support.
