St Bede’s College and St Bede’s Prep are delighted to announce that from September, we will see the exciting reintroduction of our girls’ football programmes. With the women’s game growing annually in both popularity and engagement, St Bede’s will provide all of our girls with the opportunity to engage in the game and look to build on the College’s footballing reputation. With the current coverage of the Women’s World Cup breaking viewing records, we feel that this is a great time to re-launch our Girls’ Programmes in September 2019.
Girls’ football has already been running for four years as part of our Prep and College co-curricular schedule but from September, the programme will be become more formalised, focussing on developing skills as well as introducing competitive fixtures. Our current Prep provision already includes annual fixtures against King’s Chester and a number of other schools. The Prep team also enter the prestigious AJIS tournament, which is held at St Bede’s. Alongside the current provision the girls will compete in the Manchester Junior Schools League with fixtures taking place at Whalley Range High School on one Wednesday per month from September until March.
