School of Football

A social and academic programme designed to use football as a tool to engage with S1 – S2 pupils from areas of social deprivation. 22 schools and 608 pupils are involved in daily football coaching. 

Physical education teacher at Govan High School, Gordon Reid, said

We’re now in our second year of the programme and I have seen it grow to become a hugely positive influence, not only within the school, but within the community.

“It’s one of the best projects I have worked on in my career. It does what it says on the tin – it’s a tool that motivates the young people to come to school and enjoy it.”
