Boxing as a discipline provides pupils with opportunities to achieve goals in
both their physical and mental wellbeing. It helps to create a focus and a sense
of commitment which, when channelled correctly, can support the
removal of academic learning barriers. Scientifically it has been proven that physical exertion supports mental ability in pupils and adults. Boxing can be used to target both pupils with physical disruptive tendency as well as those who need to develop their confidence and self-esteem.
The boxing programme can be tailored to pupils with little or no previous
experience in a fun way which captures their attention. As pupils progress
within the programme the ethos and commitment will ensure there are clear
positive, tangible changes in both their ability and attitude. Confidence and
self-esteem levels will become noticeable, which will be reflected in their
academic achievements. The British Boxing Association has provided
trainers with accredited courses designed for pupils who would benefit from achievement through sport. Such courses can be delivered within school curriculum or as a breakfast/ after school club.
