Truro School is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading football development centre, Saints Southwest. Saints Southwest is an official club partner of Southampton Football Club and provides education, community, football and sporting provisions across the South West.
As an official Saints Southwest partner, Truro School pupils will benefit from the club’s commitment to ‘developing potential for all’ both on and off the pitch. Building on an already high standard of coaching at Truro School, which last year saw the school’s Under 16s team crowned joint winners of the Independent School’s FA National Shield, the unique programme will provide pathways for boys and girls, taking them to the next level, as well as opening doors to a wide range of roles within the industry, such as coaching, performance analysis and research. Delivered through daily sessions, alongside classroom analysis, gym work and individual development programmes, the programme is designed to complement GCSE, A- Levels and C-Tech lessons to produce well-rounded, balanced individuals.
New Chair of Governors, Richard Thomas, said, “This is an exciting announcement to begin the new academic year with and further demonstrates Truro School’s commitment to providing a strong sporting legacy, and finding new ways to expand sporting opportunities for all pupils.”
Mark Titchard, Director of Saints Southwest added, “It’s with great pleasure the Saints Southwest join forces with Truro School. A proactive partnership built on key values, attention to detail and professionalism. Saints Southwest have a proven track record in developing people both on and off the pitch and pride ourselves on being able to offer opportunities for many young people to take part in sport, football and reach their full potential.”
Truro School’s football education programme commences October 2020. For more information, please contact Glynn Hooper GDH@truroschool.com.
In addition, Truro School will also be the hub and heartbeat for all Saints Southwest community provisions and programmes across Cornwall.
