Football Beyond Borders

A group of Sedgehill students has been working with Football Beyond Borders (FBB) for some time now.
FBB “supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are passionate about football but disengaged at school in order to help them finish school with the skills and grades to make a successful transition into adulthood. We do this by providing long-term, intensive support, built around relationships and young people’s passions, in the classroom and beyond.”

Before half-term week, six of our students who have been involved in the project - Michael, Turaine, Zacaria, Chrisandre, Aleksy and Andrae - were given the opportunity to attend the FBB presentation evening at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with special guest Ian Wright.

Michael was chosen from students from over 50 participating schools to interview Ian Wright on stage on the night (see above). During the interview, we learned that Ian Wright - who grew up in south east London - had wanted to go to Sedgehill as a child.

Well done to Michael - and all other students involved - for representing Sedgehill so well.
