Education projects

Our Schools Programmes are delivered by expert staff, have been developed to match curriculum areas and deliver Ofsted teaching requirements for pupils aged four to 18.

We offer one off activity days, short courses and longer courses that include accreditation. We can deliver these programmes at your school or invite you to St James’ Park, a dynamic and fun learning environment for children and young people.

The children really look forward to the sessions. This is part of our whole school vision to increase and improve the level of participation across school. Our school can dip into sessions where they feel we have a skills or knowledge gap, which is providing valuable CPD opportunities.” Nicola Hepworth, Women, Girls and Disability FDO, Northumberland FA “Working in partnership with the Newcastle United Foundation we hope to continue to increase participation within schools and community settings and to provide more playing opportunities within girls’ and womens’ football.” Parent Support Advisor at Wallsend Jubilee “This course is a fantastic way for us to engage families we never normally see.”

David Stobbs, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust “Projects like Newcastle United Foundation’s Match Fit are helping children and their families to lead a healthier lifestyle. Encouraging participants to be more active and educating them to eat a healthy balanced diet is making real progress in dealing with the obesity issues throughout the region.” Darren Wood, All Saints College “Our students thoroughly enjoyed the trip to St. James’ Park. Some of our hardest to engage students were on task throughout the day, mainly thanks to the fantastic staff who led our day for us.” Catherine McKinnell, Newcastle North MP “I was so impressed by the young people who were involved with the programme and could see straight away it is a valuable and innovative way of teaching young people to think about business. With such worrying levels of youth unemployment, schemes such as this are vitally important in helping young people develop into our business leaders of the future.”

Ray Clark, PE Coordinator, Atkinson Road Primary School “Every class came away with a positive experience, especially many of our children who were born overseas. This is credit to how your history lessons and tours were well structured, engaging and clearly explained.” Stephen Fallon, Head Teacher at St Mary’s RC Primary School “The sessions have looked fantastic and it is amazing to see the families leaving with smiles on their faces each week.”
