Luton Town FC
We are a huge Luton Town FC supporter. In 2019 we became the first official 'partner school' to Luton Town FC, meaning that we work very closely with the team at Kenilworth Road. If any children come to our school, we provide them with amazing opportunities that are linked to the football club and we are the only local school that is able to do this. Luton Town FC is a big part of Stopsley and they therefore, provide us with a lot of benefits that are only available for Stopsley pupils.
These benefits include...
- Stadium visits throughout the school academic year
- Afternoon 1st team player visits
- Participation into partnership schools tournament and festivals
- Match day tickets for 3 games per year and the availability of reduced ticket prices for Category C fixtures
- Mascot visits
- Some of our pupils to be mascots at a LTFC home game
- LTFC at our annual school fete and other fundraising events (use of their inflatable dart board and inflatable goal whenever our children need a reward!)
- Meet and greet first team players after training and interview them to help develop our English skills and to learn about sports journalism
Our partnership is celebrated in quite a few different ways. Our school's logo appears on all LTFC after school leaflets, we have a school banner to promote the partnership and we have our very own page in the matchday programme. Our very first programme page can be viewed or downloaded by clicking on the image below...
The teachers at Stopsley Community Primary School work closely with LTFC as well and the club support our staff to deliver the best PE and PSHE experiences for our children. As part of this incredible partnership, LTFC also provide us with the following 'Premier League Primary Stars' delivery, which includes:
- LTFC led delivery (including 'Supermovers')
- Teacher support programme
- PSHE class lesson delivery and assemblies
- Reading and Maths stars (including further stadium visits for select groups of pupils
In the future, we will be providing all of our Key Stage 2 children at the school with Junior Hatters membership. This package, for the year 3s to year 6s (around 300 pupils) will include many more added benefits as well as the chance to be ball boys at the Hatter's games, receive reduced ticket prices for the season's matches and have the opportunity to meet several first team players and be the ones who present these players with special awards. Junior Hatters membership is expected to start for the 2019-2020 season (and school year). Click on the image below to find out more...
