Here at The Albion Foundation, we offer opportunities to participate through alternative delivery for participants who have not engaged in more traditional learning and sporting environments; enabling them to re-engage in positive activities. Our programmes are aimed at a number of different age ranges from as young as Primary School all the way through to Post 16.

The Albion Foundation School Aims (1280x819)

Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 11.28.59The Albion Foundation Alternative Education has had another successful year with its Inclusion Projects. Young students in KS3 and KS4 were given a wide range of activities and lessons to take part in and were supported to be reintegrated back into mainstream education, educated by The Foundation long term or moved on to provision that would best suit their individual needs. Our Post 16 courses in the Barclays Premier League Works and Premier League Enterprise continue to thrive under different members of staff while the likes of new projects such as “Kick Start” look to attract new participants.

Managed strategically by Allison Tripney and operationally by Anna Pincher, the team currently comprises 14 full-time staff, 3 part-time and 3 University placement students.

Our strategic principles are as follows:

  • To make a difference and raise aspirations in our local community
  • To connect West Bromwich Albion Football Club to its local community
  • To grow our own staff and our community.

Our Alternative Provision recently celebrated it’s second birthday and Match of the Day joined us for the celebrations along with WBA players Craig Gardner and Liam O’Neill.
