Primary Stars sees the Foundation visit local schools and help with the delivery of classroom and PE lessons once a week, using the power of the Spurs badge to engage students, encouraging them to learn, be active and develop important life skills. The programme also works with teachers to improve their confidence and ability to put on better PE sessions.

As part of the Primary Stars initiative, Foundation staff selected impressive young footballers from local schools on the programme and hosted a “Gifted and Talented” festival, inviting them to Hotspur Way for a training session.

The day saw Academy coaches put 30 youngsters through their paces, organising training drills and small sided games, before a medal ceremony at the end of the event.
