07.06.16 - Derby County Shares Our Pitch

Our aspiring soccer stars are being given the chance to hone their silky skills at special training sessions with top professional coaches from Derby County Football Club.

Last term we invited Derby County coaches to our playing fields to lead after school football sessions for Year 1 and 2 pupils. The programme was so popular with children and parents alike that we’ve added the football programme to our summer term.

Hector Sheldon, 6,  took to the pitch alongside Derby County coach Conor. Hector said: “I really enjoyed myself and loved learning football skills from coaches who also train the Derby County players.”

Tom Brooksby, Headmaster, said: “It is a great opportunity for our students to be on the pitch alongside coaches from Derby’s local football team. Last term these sessions were a sell-out with pupils and so we wanted to open up the experience once more.”
