S-Factor Academy is the brainchild of Lewisham native Lisa Miller – a former Commonwealth Games Silver medalist. Now a qualified coach, Lisa has been teaching athletics and multi-sports within schools and the community for over ten years.

Lisa looked at the various schemes that were being offered to the young people of Lewisham and London and felt there was an opportunity to not only increase the opportunities to take part in sport, but also create a pathway for those wishing to take their talent into an elite environment.

S-Factor Academy was founded in April 2010 and since its inception has strived to deliver high quality sports coaching to young people around London.  Excellent working relationships have been fostered with schools, sports clubs, school sports partnerships, local authority’s and National Governing Bodies (NGB).
