FACT – More exercise by young people enhances their academic performance

EVIDENCE – A comprehensive study by the London Institute of Education followed all children that were born in 2000-01. It uncovered that children between the ages of 5 and 16 that took part in regular exercise were 1 and ½ times more likely to do better in their English and Maths tests and exams. Also particular groups like disadvantaged children who took part in after school clubs on a regular basis did twice as well as those disadvantaged students that didn’t. Similar findings to such studies have been recorded in other countries such as Canada, Germany and America.

We all know that taking part in regular exercise and sport can enhance you physically and socially but what about mentally to help in the classroom?

It has been proven that boosting physical fitness levels can result in enhanced mental alertness and help with concentration and focus in the classroom.

So do you want to do well in the classroom and in your tests and exams?
