Barclays Girls' Football School Partnership


King Edward Aston are proudly an official Barclays Girls Football School Partnership. 

We will be sharing football opportunities for Key Stage 1+2 girls across the year during curriculum time and after school. There are also opportunities for Teacher development through the England Football CPD teacher training programmes.


A huge thanks to all the schools who contributed to the girls football programme in 2021-22. The partnership was awarded the Outstanding Strategic Use of Programmes, Competitions or Events to Engage Young People Award at the Youth Sport Trust / Barclay's Football Awards night. This is great recognition for all the schools and their work to ensure that girls have equal access to football in the curriculum and extra-curricualr activities.

ImageThe FA are celebrating pupils and staff who have rallied for change and helped change perceptions of girls' football in their school. Does this sound like someone you know?

Pupils who have gone above and beyond to show that this is a sport for all, or staff who have fought hard to provide equal access, we want to hear their stories!

Nominate them for a #LetGirlsPlay Award and give them the glory and the chance to be rewarded with a trip to Wembley to watch The Women’s FA Cup Final, plus so much more. Click on the button below to nominate!
