Our Year 10 boys football team, at the Manchester United Foundation ‘Stay Safe’ football tournament in 2022, held at Stretford High School

Unlike conventional football tournaments, players engaged in interactive workshops between games. The workshop’s aimed to raise awareness of the dangers of knife crime as well as teach self-defence, preventative techniques and methods to help young people remain safe within our communities. Following a string of solid performances, the team ended the day as overall winners. Attitudes and behaviour throughout the day was exemplary and students were a real credit to TEMA.

Today was a good and productive day. We played football and learned about knife crime, which was a very interesting experience. We learned all about self-defence and staying safe.
