ESSA Academy

The Foundation works alongside staff at ESSA Academy to identify and support disengaged pupils through sports, leadership and mentoring activities. The partnership also focuses on developing a structured football programme and aims to improve sporting performance.

Our partnership

ESSA Academy has been a Foundation partner school since February 2018.

Working alongside the staff at ESSA Academy, the Foundation delivers tailored mentoring interventions with the aim of helping individuals and select groups realise their potential both socially and academically. The partnership also allows students the opportunity to spend productive time away from the classroom to discuss any issues they may be experiencing.

Structured football sessions are delivered each term to improve skill and performance with the aim of signposting participants onto clubs within the local community.
