About Sheffield Sports


Sheffield Sports is committed to developing the opportunity for people of all ages to play sport in Sheffield. Sheffield Sports is a partnership between four schools; Silverdale School, Talbot School, Bradfield School and Newfield School who have come together to provide a full range of facilities for sport and non-sporting activities.

Grouped School Project

Sheffield Sports has been set up as part of the Sheffield Schools PFI project, one of the UK’s largest grouped schools projects with a Facilities Management value in excess of 90m. The partnership of these four schools operates under PFI 4 and all were rebuilt as part of the Building Schools for the Future (BFI) initiative. The facilities management at all four schools is contracted to Vinci Facilities, a fully-integrated facilities management company with over 15 years of experience providing flexible, dynamic support to local authorities, schools, colleges and universities.
All schools were constructed by Taylor Woodrow Construction and opened at the beginning of 2009.

Vinci Facilities Management

Vinci Facilities offer extensive services to all four site from caretaking to catering, cleaning to security, IT, grounds maintenance and maintenance of all buildings. Vinci were selected as the facilities management contractor due to their outstanding reputation and record of managing facilities within the education sector. Their commitment to the quality of education of pupils in Sheffield underpins their facilities management work and they work flexibly with the schools to ensure facilities are maintained to the highest standard, providing outstanding learning environments for all pupils.
