Move Centre of Excellence status is awarded to schools and centres using The Move Programme from Enham Trust in the most effective way.

Our Centres of Excellence are shining examples of best practice and provide continuity for the programme on a local, regional, and even national level; opening their doors to other interested parties – both inside and outside of The Move Programme – to showcase their achievements and encourage participation in The Move Programme.
