A Leisure Centre as you describe would come under several headings - place of assembly and possibly offices and shops for starters. As you say, possibly educational if lessons are given, but health care probably only if you have a clinic treating sports injuries or the like.

I sometimes have a similar problem with some of the more complex church buildings!

Defo the assembly buildings guidance large or small. Any office accommodation in there  is likely to be ancillary to its main purpose as a leisure centre.

Thanks for that, I thought small assembly was the nearest fit for its primary use.

Can't for the life of me find the amendment to the 05 Order regarding the RP using suitable persons to assist with duties.
Anybody please?

You're not thinking of the The Fire Safety (Employees’ Capabilities) (England) Regulations 2010, by any chance?

All my responses only apply to England and Wales and they are an overview of the subject, hopefully it will point you in the right direction and always treat with caution.
