Copley and All Saints Catholic College add to growing list
Copley Primary School and All Saints Catholic College are the latest schools to join up to the Huddersfield Town School Partnership Scheme.
Club Ambassador Andy Booth visited both schools recently to present them with their partnership plaques. Town’s former striker spoke to the students at Copley about the upcoming Schools Focus match at Reading.
Since the School Partnership began in the 2011/2012 season over £17,500 has been returned to schools as part of the Schools Partnership cashback scheme. Over 5,758 children and their families attended a home game during season 2012/13 as part of the partnership.
Club Ambassador Andy Booth and Town players make regular visits through the year to School Partners and over 600 hours of coaching were given to Schools Partners by Football in the Community qualified coaches last season.
The Scheme offer rewards to schools including lap of honour at half time, being official flag wavers as the team’s come out, receiving signed merchandise and match tickets (for pupil rewards or fundraising).
Town’s School Partnership is a free scheme for education establishments in West Yorkshire. The scheme currently features 67 schools who are regularly receiving cash back from ticket sales, coaching sessions and player visits.
