EdStart launches in Warrington, Irlam and Cadishead

EdStart Launches new Franchise in Warrington, Irlam and Cadishead

EdStart is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new franchise in Warrington, Irlam and Cadishead which will be run by local community member John Brookes. The expansion of the EdStart services will see more children receiving the highest quality sports education allowing them to maximise their sporting potential.

John Brookes, a former pupil at Irlam and Cadishead Community High School, has spent over 12 years as a PE Teacher in Bury at Castlebrook High School, developing his teaching skills to deliver outstanding lessons to his students. John, with a real passion for the local community and a great understanding of the EdStart ethos, is the perfect person to carry the brand image and further enhance the company’s reputation in a completely new territory.


John Brookes said:

“I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to create and develop EdStart in a new region. After a long period of time in education, I am relishing this new challenge and working alongside Chris and Paul to enhance the sporting education delivered to local school children. I am very excited and can not wait to meet more children from the local community, as well as supporting teaching colleagues in developing their skills, knowledge and understanding of Sport and PE.”


Paul Barrett, EdStart Business Development Manager:

“I am delighted that John has taken up this fantastic opportunity. John joins a very strong franchisee group and brings with him a different dynamic, with his background in secondary school education. John has a real passion for Sport and PE and is very passionate about encouraging more children to become active and to develop outstanding teachers in PE through good, supportive teacher mentoring. He will be a real asset to not only EdStart but also the people of Warrington and Irlam.”

John begins the franchise in April 2018 with a holiday club at Cadishead Rhinos Rugby League Club where John currently coaches the Men’s First Team. In addition there are a number of schools already lined up to work with him. If you would like any further information about how John could support your school, please contact him:
