Saints Community Champions

In November 2015, Saints Foundation launched the Saints Community Champions programme, which has seen us integrate six project officers in staff teams within secondary schools across Southampton, namely Oasis Academy Mayfield, Oasis Academy Lordshill, Woodlands Community College, Redbridge Community School, Cantell School and St George Catholic College. Our ‘Community Champions’ perform two main roles within schools – firstly delivering a range of sporting activities during the school day and in community hours, and secondly providing support to young people who are struggling within mainstream education.

For more information on Saints Community Champions, please contact our Schools and Community Senior Project Officer, Mike Dixon.

My confidence has grown so much, I’d even be happy to go into other schools and shout about how brilliant Primary Stars is.” Anna Pink – Primary School Teacher, Hightown Primary School

Premier League Enterprise

Premier League Enterprise is delivered in secondary schools across the city, and uses the business and brand of Southampton Football Club to help improve the attainment of pupils that are underachieving in Maths and English. Taught through a club branded curriculum and workbook, pupils that complete the 12 week programme achieve an accredited OCR Entry Level 3 in Business and Enterprise. In addition, teams from each school take part in the established Premier League  Enterprise Challenge, which this year asks pupils to develop a strategy that encourages fans to spend more time at the stadium on match days, including looking at the commercial opportunities that this could generate.
