It’s been a very exciting sporting time at our Wings School Notts as they strive to raise aspirations alongside developing the profile of sport at the school...
As part of their flourishing partnership with Mansfield Town FC the school has had the privilege of welcoming in two first team players from the club for the afternoon. Jordan Bowery, who has played in the Premier League for Aston Villa alongside the likes of Jack Grealish, and Elliott Hewitt, who has played international football for Wales, came into school to meet the young people and to give a talk about the importance of education, in particular reading and maths, and its pivotal role in professional sport and further education.
They stayed to chat with the young people and were more than happy to answer any questions, sign autographs and have photos. They even stayed for the school’s football afterschool club and enjoyed joining in with the session.
What an opportunity and experience this was for the young people of Wings Notts!
