Football Academy Coaching Easter Holidays
I am writing regarding the Football Academy Coaching Easter School planned for April. At Wellfield we pride
ourselves on “Going the Extra Mile” to ensure students have a wide range of academic, sporting and cultural
opportunities. Our Summer Football Coaching School in 2021 was very successful and we have planned to
have even more opportunities available for our students this summer.
We are offering a range of enjoyable football coaching days during the Easter holiday. These will be open for
current students from Years 7–10. Heads of Learning and PSOs will ensure that some of the available places
are for targeted students to ensure opportunities are available to everyone to try new activities. We are
planning for 50 places to be available for each of the coaching weeks.
Week 1 : Monday 11th – Thursday 14th April
Monday – Wednesday, Football Coaching in school on the 3G Football pitch
Thursday visit to Newcastle United (St James’ Park) for a Stadium tour FREE of charge.
Week 2 : Tuesday 19th – Friday 22nd April
Tuesday – Thursday Football Coaching in school on the 3G Football pitch
Friday visit to Newcastle United (St James’ Park) for a Stadium tour FREE of charge.
