Barclays Girls Football School Partnerships 

Published 14 March 2024

On Friday 8 March, St Bart’s supported the ‘Let Girls Play’ biggest ever football session. The ‘Let Girls Play’ campaign was launched in October 2021 to support England Women’s Football ambition to provide girls with equal access to football and inspire communities and schools to make change.


On Friday morning, two Year 9 half year groups and one Year 7 half year group participated in a football festival on the Astro. It was a great event with approximately 180 girls playing football throughout the morning to support this campaign.


As a school, we have been supporting this initiative to encourage more girls to play football. The girls thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity and had lots of fun playing football as well as contributing to the campaign.
