Independent School Signs Partnership with Premier League Club

This partnership means that two members of the City’s Football Education coaching team will work at the school.

Assistant Head of Sport at Rossall, Jack Cropper, said: ‘This partnership will set us apart from any other independent school and open up unrivalled avenues for our pupils. 

‘I want every one of them to be able to go home to their parents and say ‘we train with coaches from Man City, day in day out’ and have the best exposure to what sport is all about.’

Jorgina Busquets, Managing Director of Football Education, Recreation & Partner Clubs for City Football Group, commented: ‘Together, we aim to create a football programme that not only enhances the technical skills of young players but also nurtures their personal and academic growth.’
