Meet the team - School Games Organiser

  • Caroline Connell


    I have been working within sport in some capacity for the last 10 years. I started out volunteering at my local swimming club and completed a series of sports leadership awards through school. This inspired me to take a variety of coaching courses and train in a number of sports such as hockey, rugby, swimming and basketball to name a few. This led to a degree in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Hertfordshire, where in my spare time I volunteered for Saracens Sport Foundation. Once completing my degree I continued at Saracens and became a Sports Development Officer, in which I delivered a number of exciting programmes and festivals across, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Middlesex, including a lot of delivery in Barnet. I hope to transfer my skills and knowledge of the area to assist my role as SGO for Barnet West, and to continue providing for ALL.

    Having worked with many of the schools in the South and West areas of the Partnership as a School Sports Coordinator until 2011, I was fortunate enough to be able to take time out for travelling. However, here I am back again and looking forward to seeing the old familiar, enthusiastic faces as well as meeting those of you who have linked in with the BPSS since. I originally taught in the PE department at Hendon School ….. (many) years ago then returned as an SSCo 8 years ago. I can’t believe I am back there again having already made two leaving speeches! Apart from working in schools, my main involvement has also been with synchronised swimming including coach to the British Team at the 1984 Olympics – now there’s a hint!

    I am looking forward to working to ensure a sustainable future for school sport in Barnet and helping to build upon the work that the SSPs have done.

    I spent a year living and working in the US and previously worked as a FESCo in Hillingdon, I am keen to transfer skills and knowledge developed into the new SGO role.
