Leeds West Academy


Sport Ambassador Programme

Leeds West Academy was host to the Sky Sports Living for Sport Ambassador Programme on Friday 9th October.

Paul Broadbent, of Sheffield and GB rugby League, and Sue Smith of Doncaster Belles and an ex-England football player, provided an inspirational talk to our Year 7, Year 9 GCSE cohort and Year 13 BTEC Sports class. They then delivered a superb skills session to the Year 7 and Year 8 girls' group.

Mr. Long said today: "The aim of the programme this year is to deliver girls' football in school. On the back of the Womens' National Team's success, our aim is to get more girls involved with football. Today we took the first small step towards football success."

The Academy thanks Paul Broadbent and Sue Smith for their time and we look forward to a future collaboration with Sky Sports Living.
