Barclays Girls' Football School Partnership


King Edward Aston are proud to be 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 2023-24.

In 2022-23, 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.
