Stockport Academy Students Score Free Easter Football Camps

Our students enjoyed a kickabout when school was out during the Easter Break, thanks to Manchester United Foundation and Stockport Council.

Over 180 young people took part in the training workshops, which were held during the school holidays on our 4G Astro Pitches. It is the second time we have been able to host such activities after a successful launch back in October half term. 

Students in Years 7-10 were invited to take part, along with students in Year 6 who had accepted a place at the Academy and will start with us in September. 

MUF Staff focused on developing a wide range of ball skills, while also organising friendly games and competitions. As part of the charity’s drive to support the local community, students eligible for Free School Meals were also given food parcels to take home. 

At the end of the week, prizes were presented to the best performers, which included brand new Manchester United training kits. 

Mr McWilliam, MUF School Partnership Officer, said: “We had a brilliant fortnight just playing football – it was amazing to see everyone getting involved and doing something they loved, and I was also really impressed by the outstanding behaviour and attitude of all students who took part. 

“It was also great to meet our new Year 6s, who took full advantage of the opportunity to find out more about their new school and meet some of their new classmates – we can’t wait to see them again very soon!” 

Principal Mrs McCann said: “I would like to thank both Stockport Council and Manchester United Foundation for their support in making the Football Camps possible – the positive impact this has had on our families in what has been a challenging couple of months should certainly not be underestimated.”
