Why is an application process needed for Fishing for Schools?

There has been a huge growth in demand for Fishing for Schools and as a free resource to schools, we are unable to meet the growing demand within our current budget restraints.  Applying for a place is a fair and consistent way of deciding how our resources are used.

Can our school still benefit from Fishing for Schools even if our application is unsuccessful?

Yes, we can still provide paid-for sessions where your school would be charged. This also applies to schools that were successful and want to continue their provision beyond the free sessions granted.

One session with two coaches costs £330.00.  However, this is dependent on group size and required staff to pupil ratios. Prices are subject to change.

For further information on paid-for sessions please contact
