Pupils at St Mary's can now kick-start their career in sport with a new hub launched by Tigers Trust.
The Tigers Trust hub at St Mary’s College will give students more opportunities to get involved in school sport, along with a host of extra-curricular activities.
The hub is the first of its kind to be launched in Hull.
Ollie Ezard, Tigers Trust Hub Officer at St Mary’s College, said:
“Using the brand of Hull City and Tigers Trust, we hope to inspire students in the school. We want to be role models that engage students in a more active and healthier lifestyle, in and out of the classroom, so that they can be the best they can be. We want to increase participation of all sports and increase opportunities post college, including work placements and advice on how to get a career in the sport industry”
A representative from the Tigers Trust will be based at St Mary’s College full-time, and will deliver a host of activities to students. The partnership aims to develop a strategic delivery schedule including curriculum and extra-curricular projects and transition delivery, focusing on building confidence, developing life skills and enhancing employability.
Mark Arridge, Partnership Director at St Mary’s College, said:
"St Mary's College are proud and excited to extend our outstanding partnership with the Tigers Trust in becoming one of the first community hub schools in Hull and the East Riding. This partnership will provide our students with enhanced opportunities within the curricular and extra-curricular programmes that we run. “In addition, it will allow both male and female students the opportunity to gain further success in football competitions locally, regionally and nationally."
Dean Wilson, Head of PE at St Mary’s, said:
“The Hub School programme has been another exciting development in our ongoing partnership with the Tigers Trust. Our students are learning and developing new skills through the range of highly motivating and exciting initiatives offered. Already we are seeing the positive impact this has made on our curriculum and extra-curricular provision."
