Nightingale Academy has been a part of a fantastic opportunity on Monday 26th of January 2015, where football player Ben Davies from Tottenham Hotspurs attended the school as part of the ‘’Kicks it Out’’ Campaign. This was to deliver bite size workshops around discrimination in football and within society as a whole across the UK.


It was a successful afternoon and we gained some great participation and engagement from our students in Year 8. The session was delivered by Troy Townsend, Education and Development manager for Kick It Out, alongside footballer Ben Davies. During the session the students were asking questions and were really taking the opportunity to participate with the training. After the session was finished, 8 of our students were selected to have their photos taken with the football star and could ask him questions.


Please find below the related articles, from the Evening Standard, The Enfield Advertiser, Haringey Independent and from Tottenham Hotspurs, and we will be featured in the next Tottenham Hotspurs match day programme.
