Girls Only Multi-skills Club

We have been very fortunate to forge links with Oxford United Football Club and offer KS2 girls a ‘Girls Only’ multi-skills club.

It has been a fantastic experience working with the female coaches from the club. At Dashwood Banbury Academy, we are very keen to engage our girls in physical activity and by providing a 'girls only' club we have certainly achieved this.

Through a multi-skills approach, our pupils have learned and practiced skills to enable them to access sports such as football and build their confidence. They are now better equipped to join clubs outside of school and maintain their physical activity. The girls have been enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities they have had thanks to the knowledgeable coaches and well-structured skills sessions. One pupil described her experiences, 'It is really good going to an all-girls club. I can practice skills without feeling embarrassed and I get fit too!'

To continue their interest, the girls have been signposted by OUFC to a local club that they can join – Easington FC. The club is open to all girls.
