Sport Learners Hold Football Festival for Westhaven School


Last week Sport learners held another instalment in their series of sports and exercise festivals. 

The festivals are a fantastic initiative put in place in order to engage local schools and boost the presence of inclusive sport practice within the community.

The most recent event was a football festival in partnership with local Uphill-based school, Westhaven

According to Head Teacher, Jamie Peacock, “Westhaven is a specialist school, and a unique environment, for children and young people who experience complex barriers to learning.” 

The festival, which took place at Loxton Campus in our Health and Active Living Skills Centre, was an excellent opportunity for both Weston College and Westhaven students to collaborate and engage in a fun-filled, active-focused afternoon. 

Our Sport learners planned, set up and carried out a circuit of fun activities centred around improving football skills which the Westhaven learners eagerly participated in. 

Jack, Sports Academy and Enrichment Management, said “We’re really excited to be growing and building local links with local stakeholders. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to provide sport and enrichment to the community.”

Sports learners, Ella and Skyia, had this to say: 

“We had the opportunity to work with the Westhaven students, teaching them the basics and getting them involved in sport. 

We think this is important because we’re practicing valuable skills that we’ll need in our future coaching careers. It’s also really important to encourage inclusivity in sports and exercise.” 

Amazing work guys!
