Ricardo Rocha joined the latest batch of graduates from the Tottenham Hotspur Study Support Centre last week as they came to the end of their term.Having spent the last ten weeks coming to the stadium after school, students from Bruce Grove, Risley Avenue, St Francis Juniors, Lea Valley Primary Schools and Gladesmore Community School and Greig City Academy were all presented with an attendance certificate from the Portuguese international who chatted to students and parents alike.

Signing autographs and posing for photos, Ricardo said: "It’s always great to see young people being recognised when they have achieved a goal and I congratulate all the graduates from the Tottenham’s Study Support Centre, well done!”

The work the students undertook varied, but was all linked to the Club or to football. Some students learnt how to produce short films – filming in and around the stadium, whilst others composed music or developed new computer skills.

The programme is delivered as a part of the Playing for Success initiative, a partnership between the Department for Education and Skills, the London Borough of Haringey and the Club and is one that has seen thousands of local children improve their education at the lane.
