Committed to our local schools

Our Chief Executive Officer, Neil Hart, chats about how here at Burnley FC in the Community, we are proudly providing support to our local schools:

As the charity of a Premier League football club, we are absolutely committed to offering quality, innovative provision to both primary and secondary schools in Burnley and the surrounding areas.


Our team of highly-skilled practitioners are already delivering a huge range of projects across East Lancashire including school sports, multi-sports, healthy-eating workshops, enterprise projects, the new Premier League Primary Stars project, PSHE provision and, of course, our acclaimed disability sport provision that is now being delivered in every SEN school in Burnley.

As well as the guarantee of high-quality delivery, working to the correct safeguarding measures and the offer of a range of free programmes, a school partnership with Burnley FC in the Community has so many additional benefits. We can offer first team player appearances, Burnley FC signed items for school fundraising, visits to Turf Moor and all the other great elements that come via a relationship with a Premier League football club. We’re proud of what we have to offer and we want to support as many local schools as possible.

Therefore, if you’re a head teacher, a teacher or a staff member at any of our local schools and you want to find out more about how our dedicated team can make a difference to the lives of your pupils, please contact me today at We look forward to furthering our commitment to our local schools.

Neil Hart.
