The Best Days of Your Life

The Trust has worked regularly with many local schools offering stadium tours, workshops and clubs covering football, multisports, basketball and more.

Last year three schools attended a workshop at Victoria Road run by 'Show Racism the Red Card' and as many as 650 pupils and staff have visited the ground at the same time, having undertaken a week long project based loosely around  football at teh start of term.

Players and coaches have attended schools to hold question and answer sessions with pupils. Several have joined in classes reading to the pupils on 'World Book Day'.

Schools have regularly been offered complimentary tickets and participated in programme design competitions. For further information please contact

The Trust greatly appreciates the support it has received from the Barking and Dagenham Schools' Football Association, Headteachers and staff in all the local schools.

In spite of the current COVID 19 restrictions severly limiting the work with schools which can  be undertaken at this time, the Trust is prepared and willing to support schools in whatever way it can.
