The 0161 Project

Education Through Boxing 


The 0161-Project offers alternative education services to mainstream schools, independent schools/PRU’s and other agencies to work with the most challenging and vulnerable young people in Greater Manchester from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5.

We use Boxing and physical activity as the vehicle to address and overcome these challenges. We have a proven track record of positively impacting children’s attendance, behavior, attitude to learning and ensuring they do not become NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).

Our programmes aim to develop confidence, discipline, life skills and a positive identity through progressively working through different forms of alternative education. Addressing the individual needs of young people is fundamental to our work, and we strive to achieve positive wellbeing and life readiness as key outcomes for young people.
