About Us

Academic Learning Through Sporting Heritage

Sports Inspire Educational Publishing creates rich academic resources that educate children about sport and social history, key social issues and personal development, simultaneously developing their literacy and numeracy skills.


The power of sport is particularly effective in motivating under-achieving, ‘difficult to reach’ children.
