Hull City Enterprise Academy One-Year Anniversary +

5th April 2019

Funded by the Premier League and Sport Relief, the Hull City Enterprise Academy, delivered by the Tigers Trust, uses the power of football and Hull City as a business to engage and inspire young people to learn about enterprise and the world of work. The work undertaken by staff also aims to develop young people's confidence, self-esteem and teamwork amongst other skills. The programme has developed since its first delivery back in April 2018 to ensure it caters for the needs of students from a variety of schools who all have different social and personal reasons for taking part.

+1 more

Over the course of the last year on delivery, the Trust has engaged with over 300 students on the programme, working with 15 different school establishments across Hull and the East Riding. One of the first schools on the programme with the Trust was Winifred Holtby Academy in East Hull. With this school alone, the Trust has worked with over 60 students as part of the Enterprise programme and Premier League Enterprise Challenge.

The Trust is also always keen to find out the views of its participants and students have fed back positively about their experiences. One student wrote “I love this part of Tuesday” whilst another said, “It was fun and I feel more confident in myself”.

One student had missed a whole week of school in the previous month to starting the programme with the Trust. Since commencing the programme, he attended every session and did not miss a single day of school in the following month. As a direct result of his hard work and like many other students who attended all 20 hours, he received the Entry Level 3 ASDAN qualification for Enterprise.

As a direct result of his engagement with the Trust, the student stated “I feel confident in my communication, team work and taking the lead in discussions. I loved every part of the programme”.

The Trust has seen similar success stories over the last year the programme has been running and will continue to support students across Hull and East Riding from April until the end of the programme in July.

Tigers Trust Welcomes New Chief Executive +

Tigers Sport and Education Trust has announced Catherine Bishop as its new Chief Executive.



Catherine, one of the founding directors at social enterprise EN:Able Futures CIC, joins the Trust in April and will be responsible for leading and managing the development and strategic direction of the charity.


With a background in social economic regeneration, she has spent her career helping others to access opportunities and reach their full potential, using her knowledge and experience to manage projects on both a local and national level.

The new appointment comes after the Trust’s previous manager, John Davies, stepped down to pursue other opportunities, following a successful 28 years running the organisation.


Catherine Bishop said of her appointment:

“I’m very excited and feel extremely privileged to be offered the opportunity to lead the Tigers Trust at this time.

“Social health and wellbeing is incredibly important in creating vibrant and inclusive communities, and I look forward to leading the various Tigers Trust sports and education activities in support of this.

“There is huge potential in Hull and the East Riding, and I’m eager to explore what we can do in order to further support growth and regeneration in the city.”


Commenting on the Board’s decision, Chair Sean Royce said:

“We are delighted to welcome Catherine to the team and we look forward to her bringing in fresh, new ideas to further enhance the Tigers Sport and Education Trust.

“As a value-based leader, Catherine is an ideal fit for us, and with her unrivalled experience I am confident she will help the organisation go from strength to strength.”


Premier League and BT Disability Football Festival 2018 +

Tigers Trust participants head to the Etihad Campus for the Premier League and BT Disability Football Festival 2018.


Participants from 23 Premier League and English Football League clubs took to an indoor pitch at Manchester City's Etihad Campus on Tuesday 17th July for the PL and BT Disability Football Festival. 


Our Able & Active participants had the opportunity to play football and learn new skills as part of the annual event, which aims to inspire disabled people through sport.


Hosted by BT's Jake Humphrey and Abi Griffiths, the day was split into two and saw the participants take part in a skills challenge in the morning, followed by a pan-disability football tournament in the afternoon. 


The boys didn't get the results they hoped for, but they still came away smiling! They received a Premier League medal and a goodie bag after the event to celebrate their achievements during this amazing initiative. 


We absolutely love being able to send our participants to events such as this and see the difference we make to them and their lives by recognising their disability as well as their skills and abilities!

BSN Medical Partnership with Tigers Trust +

11th June 2018

BSN medical ensure the community stay ‘Match Fitt’ as they support Tigers Trust health and fitness programme...


BSN Medical, an Essity company, is a global leader in the worldwide healthcare market, and have decided to get involved with the local community of Hull and East Riding by supporting the Tigers Trust Match Fitt programme; ensuring our health and fitness project can continue in 2018.


The Tigers Trust Match Fitt programme was established in January 2016, and comprises of three fitness/boot camp sessions a week, that are opne to adults aged 18 years+ and based at the Airco Arena in West Park. The sessions are well attended and provide the community with an alternative to a generic gym environment.


Ed Griffiths, Tigers Trust Fitness Instructor commented:

“We’d really like to thank BSN medical for their financial support towards the programme, it has ensured that we can continue delivering Match Fitt to the local community and we’ve managed to upgrade some kit and equipment too which is fantastic! The sessions have been really well received by the community and we have a wide range of abilities, but all attendees have commented on the team spirit and friendly atmosphere... It’s a great programme, and we have seen some fantastic progression with the participants with many of them entering the Hull 10K this year as part of the Tigers Trust team, having never taken part in a sporting event before. It’s great to have BSN medical on board, and we look forward to working in partnership with them.”


The partnership will see BSN medical getting involved with Tigers Trust events and campaigns throughout the year and working together to help improve well-being amongst participants.


A BSN medical representative added:

“BSN medical an Essity company is proud to be starting a new partnership with the Tigers Trust, sponsoring Match Fitt, a great programme supporting health, exercise and nutrition. Our vision is dedicated to improving well-being through leading hygiene and health solutions and the programmes Tigers Trust support compliment what we stand for.

Smoke-Free Policy for Junior football games +

15th February 2019

The sidelines of all Hull’s junior football games will go smoke-free when the new season begins in September.


Partners including Hull & District Youth Football League, East Riding Girls League, Hull City Council, East Riding Council, and East Riding Football Association – which covers Hull – have teamed up to promote healthy lifestyles. The smoke-free move follows the introduction last year of a block on smoking in any of Hull’s 91 public playgrounds. 

At its AGM in May, the Hull & District Youth Football League proposed a rule change to implement the smoke-free policy, which was passed. From September, all parents, coaches and other supporters will be asked not to smoke on the sidelines of games, or within sight of children. 

Clubs will receive digital resources, leaflets, access to shared equipment including display boards and bibs in order to help get the message across. A competition will be launched for children to come up with their own drawn design asking spectators not to smoke ahead of an official launch day on September 16. 

Julia Weldon, director of public health at Hull City Council, said: “The response to this joint initiative has been fantastic, which demonstrates that the time really is right for this. We know that the vast majority of supporters do not smoke during games, but it’s vital that we send the message that young people should be protected not just from the dangers of second hand smoke, but from the potential social and behavioural implications of the normalization of smoking. 

“Our ambition remains to create a smoke-free generation here in Hull – where children grow up without seeing smoking as an acceptable part of day-to-day life. Changes like this and last year’s ban on smoking in playgrounds all contribute to that. 

“We are extremely optimistic that, as we have found with smoking in playgrounds, an awareness and understanding of the change will be enough incentive for people to follow the rules”. 

Keith Pinder, from the Hull & District Youth Football League said: “I am extremely pleased by the positive way this was received at our AGM. As part of creating a safe environment for children and young adults to play football, this is very much a positive step forward and one which is being embraced by our clubs. Parents, family and coaches are real role models for our players and it is important we give them the right message.

“We are looking forward to the launch day on September 16, when we host the under-sevens, our youngest age group, for their first ever fixtures. 

“I would also like to thank all partners involved in getting this off the ground, it has been and continues to be a great team effort".

Adam Lowthorpe, Chief Executive Officer, East Riding County FA said: “Football sits at the heart of every community and more young people are playing football than ever before. Football has the power to change lives and it is exciting to see a number of key organisations come together to promote smoke-free sidelines. 

"The network of volunteers which runs local clubs is full of inspirational people who want the very best for young people, their support has been critical and we look forward to promoting healthy lifestyles to everyone involved.” 

While initially, the policy will only apply to football games, a future roll-out to other sports is planned. 

Smoking rates in Hull are falling steadily, but remain above the national average. Currently, around 27 per cent of people in Hull smoke – down from almost 40 per cent in 2007 – and around 40 people die in the city each month from illnesses directly related to smoking.

Initiatives undertaken to support people to quit include a range of Stop Smoking services, targeted work with partners including the voluntary sector and midwives, a targeted smoking cessation pathway for under-16s, and investment in tackling illicit tobacco.

There have also been national legislation changes, including the banning of smoking in cars with children since 2015, and high-profile annual campaigns like Stoptober. Interviews with partners available on request. A press call for the launch event on September 16 will follow later in the year.

Primary PE & Sport +

The Tigers Trust provides opportunities for primary schools in Hull and East Riding to engage with the only Professional Football Club in the area... a good option if you want to raise the profile of sport within your school.

Working with schools, we aim to develop physically active and confident children who strive to achieve their personal best.

We achieve positive outcomes by delivering high quality Physical Education and rewarding sporting opportunities... an outstanding use of the Sports Premium!

Please take time to read the following information.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of our offer then please do not hesitate to contact Richard Dexter, our School Sports Coordinator - contact details below.

PE Curriculum Support +

Our PE and Sports Specialists have the knowledge and experience to support every child’s development whilst also providing opportunities for school staff to improve their subject knowledge.

All of our coaches are either qualified in, or working towards, the Association for Physical Education Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Support.

Learning programmes consist of a minimum of five lessons. We offer multi-skills and invasion games with various sporting options for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Cost: £40 per lesson (one Senior and Junior Coach per class)

Our planned lessons use differentiation to challenge pupils and forge cross-curricular links including ICT, Literacy and Numeracy where and when appropriate.

Teaching techniques consider all learning styles and activities are planned to enable every child to make progress. Lesson planning and assessment methods are shared with schools, meaning staff can reuse them in future lessons.

Beverley St. Nicholas Primary School are benefitting from being in our partnership. Yvette Fox, Year 4 teacher said, “I have enjoyed seeing how the lessons are planned and then delivered to maximise participation and skill development. The children have time to self-reflect and discuss each other’s performances, as well as discussing rules and strategies. The children responded very well to challenges and this approach develops pupils’ abilities physically, socially and intellectually.”

Extra Curricular Coaching +

Our After School Coaching or Lunchtime Activities encourage children to extend their involvement in sport beyond compulsory PE lessons.

We offer a minimum of 5 sessions from a huge range of sports including:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Tag-Rugby
  • Hockey
  • Benchball
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Athletics

Other activities or sport specific courses can be delivered on request.

Courses can be open to all or targeted at certain groups - boys, girls, classes. years, gifted and talented or those low on confidence.

Cost: £40 per week or £2 per week for parents.

Competitions and Festivals +

One of the best ways for children to learn and develop in sport is by competing. Not only do they feel excited to take part and honoured to represent their school, but it's also a great way to boost their confidence and self-esteem.

In response to Ofsted reporting that not enough schools/children are participating in competitive sport. We offer a variety of competitive sporting opportunities which can be delivered either to individual schools or groups.

We run competitions in all kinds of sports, including:

  • Football
  • Tag-Rugby
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • Benchball
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Athletics
  • Multi-skills


Kerry Scruton, PE Cordinator, Burlington Junior School said, “We have really enjoyed taking part in the Tigers Trust competitions. They have held competitions that we do not normally participate in as part of our local sports partnership, such as football, dodgeball and bench ball. We have had many new children join the extra curricular clubs that Tigers Trust run and this has given them an opportunity to take part in these sports at a competitive level. The children have all really enjoyed these events and it has increased their confidence levels. Receiving medals at the end of an event gives them a real sense of achievement. Our school strives to get as many children involved in sport as possible and Tigers Trust has allowed us to give more children this opportunity and we are looking forward to continuing working with them.”

To ensure your school doesn't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events (details are sent via email).

Teacher Training Workshops +

In addition to the PE Curriculum Support whereby teachers/school staff observe and learn whilst supporting lessons, we also offer insightful and engaging training events.

We offer this support to schools/teachers in response to Ofsted's claim that teachers lack detailed subject knowledge to enable them to confidently plan, deliver and access quality physical education. By working closely with teachers we have developed a sustainable model which addresses the issues, this should ensure that schools and their pupils will benefit in future years.


Learning from our specialist coaches, your teachers can gain further knowledge, skills and understanding thus benefiting your school and pupils. Topics include Assessments in Physical Education and Differentiation. Delivered after school or can be arranged on Teacher Training Days.

Mike Smith, Assistant Headteacher, Holme On Spalding Moor Primary School said, “The staff have received some super CPD in the delivery of PE within school, particularly invasion games. This will ensure that the good work done by the Tigers Trust coaches can be continued throughout lessons delivered by teachers, in all year groups, right across school. This, together with our link with a high-profile professional sporting organisation, can only benefit our standards within our school.”

To ensure you don't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events.

"The staff presented an assembly on Respect and the importance of positive attitudes to our children who were engrossed in the presentation and were 'buzzing' about it afterwards."

"To the children's surprise Chuba Akpom then took part in a Q&A session. He was very friendly, enthusiastic and at ease with the children. He was open to answering all of the questions the children asked."

"It was an experience the children will never forget about and continue to talk about."

"After our visit, we were able to do follow-up work on what we all learnt throughout the day. As a results, we've been able to engage otherwise hard-to-reach pupils. I would strongly recommend a stadium tour to other schools."

Testimonials +

Julie Ellis, Head teacher, Thorngumbald Primary

"When we received our Sports Funding in 2013, our priority was how best to use it to improve outcomes for all our children. We decided to invest in high quality coaching from an outside provider to give us the additional provision that we were looking for.

From the start we were impressed with the offer from the Tigers Trust. The multi-skills sessions which we bought into gave each of our children the opportunity to experience physical activity regardless of their own background in sport. In fact this was our prime reason for choosing multi-skills as we wanted to reach out to those children who do not attend sports clubs or play for teams outside of school.

Each class, over the year, received five sessions of multi-skills coaching. Ollie and his Apprentice (usually Matt have been very professional in planning for children from Foundation to Year 6. They have engaged the children in each age group, who look forward to their weekly sessions. The pupil comments in our end of year reports to parents demonstrate how the children have enjoyed the Tigers Trust coaching. Members of staff too have commented on how the sessions have moved their own professional development forward. Most are now using ideas they have gained from observing the sessions and in this way the coaching is promoting a higher level of sustainable expertise within the school.

Many thanks to Tiger Trust- we are already looking forward to next year’s sessions!"

Andy Rhodes, Head teacher, Spring Cottage Primary School.

"At the start of the last academic year (September 2013) Spring Cottage was looking to private sport providers to enhance the delivery of PE lessons and support in our curriculum delivery.

After meeting with the Tigers Trust coaches we were confident they would be able to meet our needs. Throughout the year they have worked with our Year 3 pupils enriching their lessons across a variety of sports. The coaches are clearly confident in the delivery of numerous games activities and the pupils have responded enthusiastically across all sessions. The impact the project has had has been mainly around people motivation and their clear enjoyment of sports. The sessions are lively, maintain good pace and ensure children of all abilities are able to access the curriculum.

We will be continuing our association and the delivery of these sessions again in the next academic year. Throughout the year the Tigers Trust has also supported a number of school events such as Sport Relief and Sport Days and again their involvement has motivated the pupils to participate willingly."
