Declan Hamblin

Senior Lecturer


I have worked with numerous London school staff as part of a school sport partnership and through teacher education. I have led departments and been a Borough Advisor for PE. I am an experienced tutor in teacher and coach education courses. I am former Vice-Chair of the Association for PE. I am able to foster strategic partnerships for reciprocal gain, be it with community or national bodies. My extensive overseas experience has seen me work in pre-school settings right through to university. My pragmatic approach facilitates projects from conception through to sustainability.

I am a doctoral student who is interested in researching the inclusivity of physical education for all communities.

I work within the Centre for Physical Education, Sport and Activity (PESA) and I am determined to ensure it makes PESA a fantastic experience for all to engage and flourish in.
