Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Advanced Level sport students lead girls' football contest

Advanced Level Sports students from Burnley College Sixth Form Centre used their skills and knowledge to host a seven-a-side girls' football tournament for local primary school pupils.

The big event, hosted on the College's all-weather pitches, formed part of the English Schools Football Association week-long national promotion and formed part of the College's successful Schools Sport Partnership, encouraging fitness and healthy habits from a young age.

Some 120 girls from Years 3 and 4 at 12 schools took part in the tournament, which was led by the highly-motivated Sports students who designed the fixtures; refereed; collected the results and calculated the winners as part of their course assessment. The students have already run the Lancashire FA Boys Football qualifiers for Burnley; a Fundamentals Festival for local primary school children and a physical development programme for local children with special educational needs. 

The 12 local primary schools taking part were:

  • St John the Baptist RC, Padiham,
  • St Augustine's RC,
  • Holy Trinity CE
  • Worsthorne
  • Brunshaw
  • St Stephen's CE
  • St Leonard's CE
  • Lowerhouse
  • St Mary Magdalene's RC
  • St Mary's RC
  • Cliviger
  • Padiham.

And the winners on the day were Cliviger; St John’s Padiham and Holy Trinity!
