Castle Hill drop into Canalside to meet the first team

Students from Huddersfield Town school partner Castle Hill were invited down to the Club’s Training Ground Canalside last week to meet the first team and have merchandise signed.

On the day students were given the opportunity to obtain discount on merchandise in the Stadium Superstore before visiting Canalside in the afternoon to have the items signed. They also had the opportunity to have their picture taken with their favourite Town players. 

Town players Adam Hammill and Scott Arfield are pictured meeting with the students and signing merchandise.

Castle Hill is a Specialist College for Communication and Interaction based at Newsome, the School caters for the needs of learners aged 3 - 19 years with severe or profound learning difficulties. Many of the students also have complex needs linked to physical or health difficulties. Some of the students are identified as being on the autistic spectrum. They aim to meet the individual needs of all its students through a variety of curricula and enrichment opportunities including creative and science projects, specialist music and music interaction.

The school is one of a large number of schools signed up to the Club's School Partnership scheme; if you would like to get involved or for more information call Town's Rachel Taylor (details below).

The aim of Town's school partnership is to formalise the offerings Huddersfield Town currently make to schools in one service through the Club, FITC and support sessions. It will also provide schools with assistance during the recession through 'cashback' schemes, student rewards, player visits and school kits provided by Huddersfield Town.
