Y9 Premier League Inspires
“Premier League Inspires is a new education programme developed by the Premier League, aimed at children and young people between the ages of 11 and 25. Working in partnership with the Premier League and the Prince’s Trust, Wolves Foundation have developed a programme to engage with secondary schools across the city to provide learners with an alternative classroom experience. Fortunately, a group of Coppice Y9 students have had the privilege in taking part in the programme in order to develop further their own inter-personal and self-management skills which they can transfer and apply later on in life. There is also the potential for the students to represent Wolves in a national finals competition against the other clubs in the Premier League. In addition, as part of their programme they have been tasked with improving the community and surrounding areas as part of their “Active Citizenship” unit.
As part of the unit, they recently visited the Canal & River Trust in Wolverhampton and were given the jobs of clearing pathways leading to canals to enable the safe passage for walkers and cyclists. I think it’s clear to see the great job that they have done and how the local residents will now be able to enjoy their walks and cycling routes. Due to the success with the current group of students participating, Wolves Foundation have approached the school looking to develop the programme further and work with other groups of students in the school.
Well done lads, you’ve been an absolute credit to the school.”
