The Club’s Ambassador gave out the certificates and prizes to children from various Haringey schools who have taken part in the educational programme at the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s state-of-the-art Spurs Learning Zone during the Summer Term.

Playing for Success is run by Haringey’s Children and Young People Service, combining the unique appeal of a Premier League football club with innovative teaching to raise attainment at Key Stage Two and Three in literacy, numeracy and ICT.

Over 25 Haringey schools each year have the opportunity to send pupils to the Tottenham Hotspur Playing for Success project.

Pupils attend two-hour sessions each week for a total of 10 weeks, during which they are offered a unique educational experience where skills taught in school are enhanced and developed.

Each session is delivered by a trained teacher and assisted by a team of dedicated Learning Mentors, who are recruited locally and represent the balance of ethnic groups within Haringey.

Tutors and mentors are trained to develop and raise self-esteem. As a result, the Spurs Learning Zone provides a positive learning environment.

The following Haringey schools have taken part in Tottenham Hotspur’s Playing for Success scheme this term:

- Mulberry Primary School

- Crowland Primary School

- Devonshire Hill Primary School

- Stamford Hill primary School

- North Harringey Primary School

- Welbourne Primary School

- Northumberland Park Community Secondary School
