This year, a group of Year 10 students have been working with Newcastle United Foundation as part of an ASDAN course.

The Enterprise Academy teaches 11 to 19 year-olds the basic principles of business and self-employment using Newcastle United Football Club as a real life case study. The programme helps students understand jobs, professions and career options and delivers programmes that are innovative and fun.

On Friday, as part of this course, the students visited St. James’ Park, took in a stadium tour and had a lesson in an executive suite overlooking the pitch. Here are some photos from the day:
