Schools & Enterprise
Saints Community Champions
In November 2015, we launched the Saints Community Champions project, 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.
We are really excited about being part of, what I think is a ground-breaking programme.” Phil Humphreys – Principal – Oasis Academy Mayfield
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.
He not only has improved in lessons, his whole persona around the school has changed. He has become more motivated to succeed.” Charmaine Moth – Behaviour Manager – Chamberlayne College of the Arts
