After Ruth Gorse, a former PE teacher at The Morley Academy and player for Leeds Volleyball Club, died of breast cancer, the club formed an alliance with The Ruth Gorse Academy resulting in The GORSE Volleyball Club, a partnership designed to grow volleyball participation in Leeds.

A specialist Coach and Leeds Director of Youth Development, Elaine Brown, visits each primary and secondary across the trust to introduce and teach volleyball to pupils and staff.

As a result, several pupils have been recruited to join Leeds GORSE Volleyball Club and compete at junior level. The programme has been such a success that some juniors are now being selected to play at adult level.

Our goal is to ensure every pupil across the trust has an opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport and to play to the best of their ability.
