FA Girls Football School Partnership

'Every girl has equal access to football in school by 2024'.

St Helens is host to one of 100 national FA Girls Football Partnerships (FAGFSP). The partnerships aim to support and develop the delivery of girls' football in schools for girls through the delivery of bespoke programmes which engage, excite and encourage girls and young women to make football a part of their life. 

Schools are able to access a number of opportunities to enhance the delivery of football through the use of age-appropriate resources and training and development for staff. Although led by The FA, a number of the programmes are focused on improving wider outcomes for girls by developing their communication, leadership and teamwork skills as well as helping with social development and self-esteem.
